PASSPORT SERVICES

Our constituency office accepts completed passport applications from any resident wishing to obtain or renew their Canadian passport. In addition to this regular service provided at the office, we also host an annual Passport Clinic which is your local “one-stop-shop” for completing and submitting your passport application. During Passport Clinics an on-site photographer is available for your photography needs. Please see our Events page for upcoming Passport Clinic dates.

When you take advantage of our MP passport services, your fully completed passport application is reviewed and forwarded to Passport Canada on your behalf. It is then returned to you by mail in approximately 20 working days (1 month). To ensure your application is processed in a timely fashion, please be sure to submit all the necessary documents with your application.*

Note: There may be delays due to COVID-19.

 

*Please note that the issuance of passports remains solely with Passport Canada.
