Where can I find my client ID/UCI?
This eight or ten digit number appears on all documents you get from us. It looks like this: 0000-0000 or 00-0000-0000.
If you have sent us an application before
Look for this number on:
- letters we sent you
- your immigration document such as a PR card, study or work permit
If you do not have any of these documents but want to fill out an application form:
- you can leave the field for UCI (Client ID) blank
If you have not dealt with us since 1973, you will not have a UCI or a Client ID.
If you have not sent us an application before
You will not yet have a client ID. If you are filling out a form that asks for one, write “Not Applicable” or “N/A” in the space provided.
If you are applying online and the form does not allow you to write “N/A,” leave the space blank.
