Passport Renewal

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. Keep your Passport valid to ensure you can travel abroad and return to Canada. Do not wait until the last minute to renew in a panic.


Renewal Considerations

You must be a Canadian citizen to apply for a new Canadian passport. To renew your Canadian passport, your current passport must:

…not be damaged
…never have been reported lost or stolen
…have been issued with a 5-year or 10-year validity
…be valid or has been expired for no more than 1 year on the day we receive your application
…have been issued when you were at least 16 years of age
…have the same name, date of birth and place of birth you want on your new passport
…have the same gender identifier you want on your new passport (either printed on your current passport or the observation sticker)

You may apply for a passport for a child (under the age of 16) if you are:

…one of the child’s parents and providing proof of parentage or
…the child’s legal guardian and providing proof of legal guardianship or
…the custodial parent in the case of separation or divorce and providing related legal documents

Is your Consultant Registered?

Ensure your chosen consultant is licensed to practice by the Canadian Goverment. Immigration consultants must be a member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), Lawyers or notaries from a Canadian provincial or territorial law society, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec. Paralegals (Ontario only) must be members of the Law Society of Upper Canada. If they are not members in good standing, you should not use their services.
