Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this.

You can find some information regarding this type of situation on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website in the Request to Amend Record of Landing, Confirmation of Permanent Residence or Valid Temporary Resident Documents (IMM 5218) section.

It states that,

Your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) or your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (IMM 5292 or IMM 5688) will be amended only to correct errors made by Canadian immigration officials in recording the information you provided when you applied to come to Canada.



You may want to try and contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre directly to see if they possibly have any information and suggestions regarding this.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
