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.

Although it's pretty obvious to Canadians, many people outside the country have a misconception that Toronto is the capital city of Canada. It's not! So why Ottawa? It's the place where federal politicians meet to talk about current laws and to make new ones.

On Sunday, September the 20th, join us in celebrating Canadian humanitarian, Terry Fox, by participating in a Virtual Terry Fox Run to raise money for cancer research.

In 1977, athlete Terry Fox was diagnosed with cancer, resulting in the amputation of one of his legs. Instead of feeling defeated, Terry embarked on an east to west cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. He called this journey the Marathon of Hope. Terry Fox ran each day, for an impressive 143 days and 5,373 kilometres, resulting in a worldwide legacy. Today, the Terry Fox Run has grown to involve millions of participants in over 60 countries and is now one of the world's largest cancer research fundraisers.

Although we are unable to run, walk or bike together this year, we are able to unite in spirit. Register today to support the Canadian hero that is Terry Fox: http://ow.ly/vIvs50BrDM2
