do you mean reference letter or employment letter?

I am not an expert at Canadian Immigration.
Please don't expect me to answer if your post title has urgent in it and it is not really urgent. Urgent is 911 or you have a definite deadline tomorrow, not that you would like to send in the application soon

I want employer reference letter. I am sorry if I was not clear in my first post.

I want sample reference letter so that I can post it to my employer and get this done on letter head with role,salary,designation,time period mentioned on that.

If the company has ceased to exist, then you will have to back up your "Experience" from that company with other docs like paystubs, tax docs,appreciation letters or any docs that would precisely indicate that you have performed the Job. Of course, you will also have to write a cover letter with the explanation as to why you are unable to provide reference from the Company itself.
