One of the most powerful and revered travel documents in the world is the Canadian passport. Some people use it to reconnect with loved ones, go on adventures, and explore new places. For other people, it denotes the last move toward their migration process, becoming Canadian residents and joining a different and comprehensive society that values a majority rules system, opportunity, and basic freedoms.
The Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of Families, Children, and Social Development, and the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, are pleased to present the brand-new Canadian passport today. Maintaining its status as one of the most secure and universally accepted travel documents in the world for all Canadians, the new passport has been redesigned from cover to cover with cutting-edge security features and new artwork.
A polycarbonate data page, which is similar to the technology used in Canada’s driver’s licenses, is one of the cutting-edge security features included in the new passport. These features are intended to protect Canadians’ identities. Identification holders’ very own data will presently be laser engraved as opposed to being printed with ink, making the information page more strong and impervious to altering and forging. A Kinegram over the primary image, a custom-made see-through window with a secondary image of the passport holder, a variable laser image, and a temperature-sensitive ink feature are additional features.
With iconic images of Canada’s natural beauty throughout the four seasons, the new passport celebrates Canada’s heritage and identity. It likewise incorporates another cover plan with a blueprint of a maple leaf — the first huge change in quite a while. Later in the summer, the new passport will begin to be distributed. Canadians with valid passports will only need to renew them when they are getting close to their usual renewal date because the current passport remains safe and reliable until then. At a later time, additional information regarding the rollout will be made available.
Additionally, the Canadian government has been working to expand the variety of online services available to Canadians. Canadians will be able to securely and conveniently renew their passports, pay their fees, and upload a photograph online starting later this fall.
