UCI stands for “unique client identifier.” It is also known as a client identification number (client ID). It’s on official documents you receive from IRCC.
It has either:

  • four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 0000-0000), or
  • two numbers, a hyphen, four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 00-0000-0000)

You will not have a UCI number yet if you are applying to IRCC for the first time.

Happy Civic Holiday! This is a statutory holiday in Canada (except Quebec and Yukon), which means many people get the day off. It's also the last holiday before students go back to school in September.

Did you know? An inuksuk (plural inuksuit) is a figure made of piled stones. Traditionally created by the Inuit, inuksuit are used as aids for navigating, hunting, and communication, while some inuksuk-like figures hold spiritual significance. Inunnguaq for example, created in the form of humans, are generally more symbolic in their purpose.
