What Should a Canadian Citizen Do if Their Passport is Lost or Stolen Abroad?
If your passport is lost or stolen  while you are outside Canada, report the loss or theft to the local police, obtain a copy of the police report, and immediately contact the nearest Canadian government office for a replacement. Make sure you get a copy of the police report or the report number. Before a new passport can be issued, you must complete an application form, produce written evidence of your Canadian citizenship (a birth or citizenship certificate and at least one current supplementary document to support your identity), present two recent photos, pay the required fee, and complete “Statutory Declaration Concerning a Lost, Stolen, Damaged, Destroyed or inaccessible Canadian Passport or Travel Document” (form PPT203).
