Find application forms and guides

Canada Post is currently in labour negotiations. Failed negotiations could lead to delays in:

  • receiving applications mailed within or to Canada
  • sending mail to you

If you’re planning on traveling to Canada or submitting an application, (including for a passport or other travel document) apply early.

Visit Canada Post for more information before sending any application by mail. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
