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.

Despite the hits Canada took to immigration levels in 2020, this was the biggest year in the Express Entry system’s history.

Although 2020 was a tough year, we at Next Stop Canada hope to continue providing pre-arrival services to immigrants as they make their journey to Canada.
