Can I use my email address when I apply for an eTA on behalf of someone?

Yes. If the applicant does not have an email address, you can use yours. However, by entering your email address, you will get all emails from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) about the person’s application. You will also continue to get relevant emails for the period the eTA is valid (up to 5 years).

If you enter the person’s email, IRCC will email the applicant directly.
