To replace a lost, stolen, or damaged green card, you need to fill out Form I-90 (officially called the “Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card”), provide supporting documentation, and, if required, pay a filing fee.

If you need evidence of your lawful permanent resident status while waiting to receive a replacement Green Card, we may issue you an Alien Documentation, Identification & Telecommunications (ADIT) stamp after you file this form.

Hello - My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to assist you today. I am a Canadian lawyer who is able to answer immigration law questions.

You do need to submit proof of your permanent resident status to sponsor your wife which is your PR card. However, Canada immigration does have a record in their computer system that you have PR status if you give them your name, date of birth and Client ID number which should be on your Confirmation of Permanent Resident document.

In order to save time, I would advise you to submit the spousal sponsorship application now without your PR card while simultaneously applying for a replacement of your PR and submit it later to Canada Immigration because it usually takes Canada Immigration 3-4 months to actually start processing your file after they receive it.

Hope this answers your question.

Customer
