March 5, 2014 — With over 65,000 Canadian passports lost or stolen in 2013, Passport Canada will implement a new service fee for replacement passports. As a cost-recovery operation, the Passport Program must charge the appropriate fees to cover its costs which will keep general passport fees down and maintain a high level of service for Canadians.

The following new administrative services fees will take effect on March 31, 2014:

Service New fee
Certified true copies of part of a passport or other travel document (one to three copies) $45
Replacement of a valid lost or stolen passport or other travel document (in addition to passport fee) $45
File transfer (to a different passport office in Canada) $45Note *
Retention of a valid passport (in Government of Canada offices abroad during processing of the application for a replacement passport) $45

Notes

Note *

Additional fees will apply for standard, express or urgent pick-up.

Return to note * referrer

Canada's passport and travel document fee structure is set up to balance the costs and revenues of the program as a whole over a 10-year business cycle, including the basic cost of issuing passports and offering services, but also costs associated with the rental of buildings, investments in infrastructure, and new and emerging international security initiatives. Please visit the Canada Gazette website to read the complete Passport and Other Travel Document Services Fees Regulations.
