Depends on how damaged it is.

If you can arrange to visit a Canadian embassy they can examine your travel documents and advise you further.

If you need new/replaced travel documents, you should make application immediately. I believe there are expedited services available but I do not know the requirements are nor what the timelines are.

For obvious reasons, yes, damaged travel documents can pose all sorts of problems -- in addition to just how damaged the documents are, how difficult probably depends on the countries being transited, from origin to destination, nature and quality of other clear identification in one's possession, one's own travel history, and other factors. The one overriding issue, of course, is identity. The second issue is meeting commercial carrier's standards for boarding the carrier. And so on.   
Bureaucracy is what bureaucracy does, or When in doubt, follow the instructions. Otherwise, follow the instructions.

BTW: Not an expert, not a Can. lawyer, never worked in immigration
