Key Points

  • Five passport offices are now permitted to provide passport pick-up services for Canadian citizens


On 25 July 2022, the government of Canada expanded passport pick-up services to include five additional locations across Canada. Canadian citizens will now be able to pick up their passports in these locations:

  • Brampton, Ontario  
  • Whitby, Ontario   
  • Pointe-Claire, Quebec  
  • Calgary Sundance, Alberta   
  • Richmond, British Columbia   

What are the Changes?

The government of Canada introduced new in-person pick-up locations at five more Canadian passport offices on 25 July 2022. Currently, there are 29 passport offices that permit passport pick-up services. This newest update will allow more Canadians to pick up their passports in person and do so closer to the applicant's place of residence. The government also expects this change to reduce delays in passport processing and delivery times.
