Canadian passport applications

Only use passport forms from Canada.ca. Forms on third party sites may be out-of-date or unofficial. We may reject your application if you don’t use the latest, official form.

If you have problems opening a form in your internet browser, you need to:

  1. Use your computer. The forms may not open on mobile devices (iPads, tablets, mobile phones).
  2. Make sure you have Adobe Reader 10 (or higher) already installed on your computer. If not, download Adobe Reader 10 for free. Adobe has help for solving common issues.
  3. You must save the file on your computer in a place you can remember.
  4. Open the file on your computer using Adobe Reader 10 (or higher).

For more help, see our PDF application forms instructions in the Passport Help Centre.

If you still have trouble opening the forms, contact us online or call us at 1-800-567-6868. If you’re outside Canada, contact the closest Canadian government office abroad.

The term “Mother’s maiden name” may not apply to everyone. If this term doesn’t apply to you

  • cross out the expression on the form and write “Parent’s surname at birth”
  • fill in the field with the surname (last name) at birth of 1 parent
  • write your initials in the margin
