Since July 1, 2013, all new Canadian passports are issued as electronic passports, or ePassports. Adult applicants have the option of a 5- or 10-year ePassport for both first-time applications and renewals, while children's ePassports are issued for a maximum of 5 years.
The personal information pages (pages 2 and 3) include:
The passport holder’s photo is digitally printed and embedded into the page. It also appears on the electronic chip.
The personal data is digitally printed and embedded in the page and cannot be removed or erased. The information shown on page 2 is also stored on the electronic chip (except for the place of birth).
Holographic images are embossed in the thin-film laminate used to secure the information page. These images can be viewed by tilting the booklet in reflected light.
There is "Optically variable ink" that changes colour under different lighting.
This symbol represents that this is an ePassport, which means it contains an embedded electronic chip.
A copy of the passport holder’s photo appears in greyscale.
The letters "CAN" appear when looking through the page.
The last two lines at the bottom of the page are the machine-readable zone, which repeats the passport holder’s personal information and passport details in a special format.
If your Canada passport was issued when you were 16 years old or older, your passport is valid for 10 years. If your Canada passport was issued when you were 15 years old or younger, your passport is valid for 5 years.
