OK, here goes, I have been in the States for 3-4 years and recently renewed my L1 Visa and everything is in order...the problem is, I cannot find it after my last trip! As a Canadian, I have to get a Canadian passport, obviously across the border, to cross the border, I require the passport with my L1 card. Do I have to go to the Canadian Consulate in Austin (I am in Fort Worth Texas)? I have the legal paperwork seperate as back-up. I fear getting shipped out of the country and I am somewhat fearful of who to tell in case there is some ruckus' and I get shipped out for not having the papers. How do I go about replacing a candian passport when working in a foreign country???

No idea about the passport, I'm afraid. But the L1 visa is easy -- you can only get a re-issue of that at a US consulate. Your other problem is the I-94 affixed inside. You can get a copy of this but only at an incredible price -- there's a form on USCIS.gov for applying with a commensurate $$$ fee. You won't need the visa until you leave and want to return......but you should have the I-94 with you.
