Canadian Passport Renewal: A Comprehensive Guide

Renewing your Canadian passport is a straightforward process, but it does require some preparation. This blog post will guide you through the steps of Canadian passport renewal.

Who Can Renew a Passport?

Only adult passports can be renewed. If you’re 16 or older, you can renew your passport. If you’re under 16, you need to apply for a new child passport. An expired, damaged, lost or stolen passport can be renewed if it was issued within 15 years of the date you apply, and you meet all the other eligibility requirements.

When to Renew Your Passport
Step 1: Complete the Form

Fill out the form on your computer to save time. Read the instructions at the end of the form to make sure you’ve completed it properly. You can download the adult passport renewal application here.

Step 2: Gather Required Documents and Passport Photos

You need to include the following with your application: the date your passport was issued, the date it expired, and its passport number.

Step 3: Find Two References

You will need two references to complete your application

Step 4: Pay the Fees

The cost for different passport services will be shown after you answer the questions on the form

Step 5: Submit Your Application

You can submit your application in person at an authorized receiving agent or a passport office. Applications can also be submitted by mail. Starting in the Fall of 2023, Canadians will be able to submit their passport applications online.


Renewing your Canadian passport is a simpler process than applying for a new one. By following these steps, you can ensure a smooth and successful Canadian passport renewal process.I hope this guide has been helpful in understanding the process of Canadian passport renewal.
