If your documents are lost or stolen

If your documents are lost or stolen

  • If your passport is lost or stolen, you must replace it immediately. You must have a new passport before replacing any Canadian permits or applying for a new Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), if you had one.
  • If your other documents, such as study or work permits, are lost or stolen, you must request a replacement from IRCC.
    • Follow instructions on the IRCC website and submit your application with proof of payment of the $30 processing fee.
    • You may continue studying and/or working while your documents are being replaced.
    • You should not leave Canada until you receive your replacement study or work permit.
