I lost my passport

If you have lost your passport, you must advise your passport office or consulate immediately.
All passports found at an airport are turned over to the local Canadian or United States Customs office, or to Airport Security at the airport in which they are found.


I lost some currency

All currency found by an Air Canada or Jazz employee in a lost wallet, bag or piece of clothing is put in safekeeping at the Air Canada ticketing office in the airport where it was found, and a receipt is placed inside the item in which the currency was found.

When the lost wallet, bag or piece of clothing is returned to you, it will be accompanied by the receipt and a letter explaining how you can claim your money.
