What is the purpose of a verification of status? I landed in 2007, and stayed for two years. Since then I have been accompanying my Canadian citizen spouse abroad. I don’t have my PR card since it expired. Would the VOS serve any purpose?

A Verification of Status replaces a lost or incorrect Landing Paper, IMM 1000 Record of Landing or Confirmation of Permanent Residence. It is not a travel document so it doesn’t help you.

You need to apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document in order to return to Canada. You will have to prove that you have been living with a Canadian citizen as part of the application, otherwise you could lose your status.
