Quebec Passport Changes

Winter 2001 CSANews Issue 41  |  Posted date : Apr 03, 2007.Back to list

Effective immediately, the province of Quebec will no longer accept birth certificates, issued prior to 1994, as valid proof of identity to obtain a passport. Baptismal certificates will also not be accepted. A certificate of Canadian citizenship will remain as part of the identification process, however. It is our guess that US Immigration officials will also not be recognizing the pre-1994 birth certificates and baptismal certificates at border crossing points.
