Passport Canada issues over 2.5 million travel documents annually, most of which are regular passports. There are five types of passports:
Canadians are most familiar with the 24-page passport. This passport is issued to Canadian citizens, and it is used for occasional travel, such as vacations and business trips. It accounts for 98 percent of all travel documents.
Frequent Traveller Passport
The 48-page passport is much like the 24-page passport, but with extra pages for frequent travellers, such as business people.
Passport Canada issues diplomatic passports to Canadian diplomats, top ranking government officials, diplomatic couriers and private citizens nominated as official delegates to diplomatic international conferences.
Passport Canada issues special passports to people representing the Canadian government on official business. These include members of the Privy Council who are not members of the Cabinet, members of Parliament, provincial Cabinet members, public servants and private citizens nominated to conferences that are not diplomatic in nature.
Canadians stranded abroad may be issued emergency passports by Canadian diplomatic and consular missions on behalf of Passport Canada.
