I am sorry if I sound silly, but what is UCI in question 3 on the Generic IMM 0008 form? And also, I am a Malaysian but currently living in Canada. So my current country of residence is Canada?

I'd like to know too, given that this is one of the numbers they associate with your file along with the B and F numbers when they reply to your email....

UCI = Universal Client Identification number or Unique Client Identifier.  Basically it's just another file number that identifies you and your application.

You leave that space blank unless you were given an UCI from a previous application. It's not mandatory to include one.

This is from the Guide, item 3:
"Indicate your Universal Client Identification number (UCI) or Client Identification number (Client ID), if known (8-digit number). Otherwise, leave it blank. If this is your first application with CIC you will not have a UCI or a Client ID."

Yes, it is Canada, unless you are in Canada on a TRV or for only a short time.
