Find out if you can renew your passport

You now have extra time to renew your passport.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we extended the eligibility period for Canadian passport renewals. You may be able to renew your passport if it expired on or after February 1, 2019.

This change lets you wait to renew your passport until you have plans to travel.
