We have the short form/wallet size canadian birth certificate. Is this sufficient to apply for my first Canadian Passport or will I need to send for the long form Birth Certificate?

Each state’s short form birth certificates are different. The requirements are that it shows your name, date of birth, place of birth, sex, mother’s name, father’s name (if available), certificate or file number, and date filed. As long as you?re short form includes all of that information, it will be accepted.

Only documents entitled “Birth Certificate” or “Certificate of Birth” issued by a provincial/territorial authority in Canada are accepted.
