    It is recommended to provide consent for any individual whose information could be contained in the requested records: your spouse, sponsor(s), co-signor, any family member including children 16 years of age or older. By providing consent from all individuals you will have access to more information in response to your request, otherwise, some of the information on file would qualify for exemption.


    A piece of photo ID that includes your signature, e.g. passport biographical pages (i.e. photo & signature pages) is also required. Providing a photo ID of all applicants will assist the government institution in processing your request; it can be submitted along with the consent form. Learn more about Identity Verification.


    Minimize the risk of delay. Request your file from both IRCC and CBSA. The risk of processing delay at IRCC or CBSA exists. This risk cannot be fully eliminated but it can only be reduced. Receive 2 files: 1 from IRCC and 1 from CBSA both with similar content. Learn more about IRCC vs CBSA.
