Processing Times for Canadian Passport Applications

Standard times for processing passport applications fluctuate depending on where you apply, the time of year and the volume of applications. Passport Canada maintains a regular Update on Processing Times (use the dropdown box at the top of the page to select your location) with the latest estimates. These estimates do not include delivery time.

Processing passport applications may take longer during peak times, or if there are problems with the application. The off-peak time for passport applications in Canada is between June and November.

If your passport application has taken longer than the normal processing time, use the Passport Canada online form to check the status of your Canadian passport application.
