Renew your passport – adults

To renew your passport, you must be a Canadian citizen and your previous passport must have been issued to you when you were 16 years of age or over.

Canada Post services across Canada may be affected by ongoing delays in service from continued labour negotiations.

Our processes will be unaffected though you may experience delays in:

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.
