I have numerous questions concerning the process after reading the pertinent online information. My biggest concern is : statutory declaration signed by you attesting to your identity and a statutory declaration also attesting to your identity signed by:

a person who knew you before you came to Canada (such as a family member) or
an official of an organization representing people from your country of nationality or former residence.

Where do you find an official of an organization representing people from your country of nationality or former residence where the country is Laos ??

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

If you are referring to the section regarding the required documents it states,


2. One (1) primary identity document
A copy of one of the following:
  • your valid passport or travel document or
  • the passport or travel document you held at the time you became a permanent resident (including your passport’s page that was stamped when you arrived in Canada and became a permanent resident) or
  • the certificate of identity or travel document issued by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada or a foreign country.


Note: The copy should show the document type and number, issue and expiry date, your name, photo and date of birth.


Under exceptional circumstances, if it is impossible for you to obtain any of the above you must provide a:
  • copy of any identity document issued outside Canada before you came to Canada
    or
  • statutory declaration signed by you attesting to your identity and a statutory declaration also attesting to your identity signed by:
  • a person who knew you before you came to Canada (such as a family member) or
  • an official of an organization representing people from your country of nationality or former residence.
Format: Clear and legible photocopy


As you can see, it states that you must provide a statutory declaration if under exceptional circumstances, if it is impossible for you to obtain any of the above.

If you have any other questions or concerns regarding this application process you may want to contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre directly.

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.

Hi there,
I hope I will get answers at my questions
First question can I renew my son's passport without his father signature. As he is refusing to sign or to return back to Canada. (Btw we are not divorced yet but separated for almost three years)?
My second question is as I'm outside Canada for so long without my wish cz he took my PRC away from me so I couldn't finish my 730 days to keep my permanent residency status.so can I get easily a travel document to return back to Canada?
Thanks in advance.
