Absolutely they will ask you that. They will send you back with it. Don't waste a trip.

The are extremely strict.

Even when you have everything perfect, they try to find minor things here & there to make y come back.

Follow the checklist perfectly - Originals , Photocopy, Photographs, Attested copies ( If Any) and so forth.

Expect at least 2-3 physical visits before everything is done.

You will have to fill up this form and mail it to CIC.

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/application-verification-status-replacement-immigration-document.html

There is a $ 30 fee for that. Make sure you write LOST and ask for a REPLACEMENT.

Don't just ask for the Verification of Status as BLS or Indian embassy won't accept a VOS, it has to be a REPLACEMENT of the record of landing in case original is lost.

Also see this old CD thread for similar lost IMM 1000 record of landing.

Also read this link.

https://www.immigrationdirect.ca/blog/2018/01/04/what-is-form-imm-5009-used-for/

Apply for the replacement ASAP. You can get a replacement in 1 month or 6 months. You never know! And you have absolutely No control over it. ALL you can do is apply ASAP without any mistakes in the application form and hope for the best.

The Canadian guys are just as bad as the Indian guys when it comes to government documents and immigration documents etc.

Incompetent and lazy union government employees are everywhere. Irrespective of the country.

It is $ 30 per document. So if you just want replacement, only apply for that and pay $ 30.

If you apply for Verification of Status along with the replacement you will pay $ 60.

VOS is of NO use to as BLS or Indian embassy won't accept that.

Make sure you pay the $ 30 with your credit card and print the paid receipt and attach it with your application. That receipt is very important and HAS to be attached with the application as that's your only proof of payment.

Keep a Xerox copy of whatever you mail to them for your own records. So you can follow up later on if there are any delays from their side.
