Canadian passports

How to apply for a passport, processing times, service locations, new requirements and what to do if your passport is lost, stolen or damaged.

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.

If you are travelling within the next six weeks, apply for a regular Canadian passport in person at a Passport Office, or send your passport or non-Canadian travel document application by courier.

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