Canadian passport updating
Beginning in July the following year, Canadian passports were issued to Canadian citizens only.Between 19, Canadian citizens could only apply for passports by mail to Ottawa.Requirements were simple, and applicants claiming birth in Canada did not have to provide proof of birth.
The cover, watermark, personalization technique and holographic laminate are same with the 2002 version.
That year, the first three Passport Canada offices were opened in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
In 1985, the first version of machine-readable passports (MRP) was issued, in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization standards.
They are issued, in the name of the reigning Canadian monarch (as expressed in the passport note), according to the Canadian Passport Order.
This Order in Council specifies grounds for which Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) can issue or renew a passport.
