    New passport Guarantor policy

    New guarantor policy in effect
    Gatineau, Québec - The Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of Foreign Affairs today announced a new guarantor policy for Canadian passports. This new policy allows most Canadian adult passport holders residing in Canada or the U.S. to act as guarantors for passport applications. Today's announcement is the next step in the continued efforts by Canada's New Government to improve passport services.

    "Canada's New Government is taking positive action to improve passport services for Canadians. And unlike the previous government, we are delivering results. In only a few months, we have increased Passport Canada's capacity by 40%, we have launched the simplified passport renewal process and we are announcing today the new guarantor policy," said the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of Foreign Affairs.

    Under the new policy effective today, an eligible guarantor must:

    Be a Canadian citizen 18 years of age or older;
    Hold a five-year Canadian passport that is valid or has been expired for no more than one year;
    Have been 16 years of age or older when they applied for their own passport; and
    Have known the applicant personally for at least two years.

    Now, any family member as well as any individual residing at the applicant's address may act as guarantor, provided he or she meets the requirements noted above. "

    It just got easier for those of us that have not yet started the process. Along with the fact that a new passport office in Coquitlam has just opened up. No waiting line ups for my brother last week. I'm going in tomorrow.
