Based on the press release issued in Ottawa, Canadian passport is redesigned from cover to cover with state-of-the-art security features and new artwork.

The new passport includes advanced security features designed to keep Canadians’ identities safe, including a polycarbonate data page and laser engraved personal information of an applicant. This makes the data page more durable, and resistant to tampering and counterfeiting.

The new passport rejoices Canada’s heritage and individuality, and includes a new cover design, the first significant change. The new visa page artwork luminosities under ultraviolet light and showcases images of Canada’s people, landscapes and wildlife.

The Canadian passport is one of the most powerful and respected travel documents in the world. For some, it is used to reconnect with loved ones, to explore, and have an adventure. For others, it marks the final step in their immigration journey, becoming Canadian citizens and joining a diverse and inclusive society that values democracy, freedom, and human rights.

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and the Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, are proud unveil the new Canadian passport. The new passport has been redesigned from cover to cover with state-of-the-art security features and new artwork, maintaining its status as one of the most secure and universally accepted travel documents in the world for all Canadians.  

The new passport includes Passport holders’ personal information will now be laser engraved instead of being printed with ink, making the data page more durable and resistant to tampering and counterfeiting. Other features include a Kinegram over the main photo, a custom see-through window with a secondary image of the passport holder, a variable laser image, and a temperature sensitive ink feature.

The new passport celebrates Canada’s heritage and identity with iconic images of Canada's natural beauty throughout the four seasons. It also includes a new cover design with an outline of a maple leaf, the first significant change in decades. 

The new passport will start rolling out later this summer. Until then, the current passport remains secure and reliable, so Canadians with valid passports will only need to renew them when they are getting close to their normal renewal date. More details regarding the roll-out will be provided at a later date.
