How long is it taking to get your Birth certificate back. We have laminated and can not get a passport? Is that correct?

Passport Canada will not accept birth certificate laminated by anyone other than the province which issued it. If you were born before the 1980s, it is possible it was laminated by the province of your birth. If it says “void if laminated” on the back, you need to contact the Vital Statistics office of the province where you were born and request a duplicate.

The average time-frame to receive your certificate is 15-20 business days.
