Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
My 16 yr old son is applying for an adult passport. He has a current child’s passport that does not expire until Sept 2016. This will be sent in with the application. Can that passport be used also as the document to support identity?
Unfortunately, the passport cannot be used as proof of identity in this case, even though it will need to be submitted to with the application. He will need to submit his driver’s license or, if he doesn’t have that, a provincial photo ID card.
