The e-passport roll-out was pushed back to July 1, 2013.
In March 2010, the passport was upgraded to include a new design of the identification page and more anti-counterfeit elements, such as the new colours of Optically Variable Ink and addition of laser perforated number.
The cover, watermark, personalization technique and holographic laminate are same with the 2002 version.
Since November 10, 2016, under the new visa regulations all visa-free passport holders (except for U. citizens and nationals) are required to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (e TA) before boarding a flight to Canada.
As the e TA is used for the sole purpose of immigration screening for non-Canadian visitors entering Canada on a temporary basis, all Canadian citizens are automatically barred from applying the e TA. Canadians living in other countries or territories are required to apply through the nearest Canadian diplomatic posts abroad.
These documents remained in use until, in 1915, Canadian passports were first issued in the British format, a ten section single sheet folder.
