    Passport Canada recently launched two new initiatives:

    - A Simplified Passport Renewal Process, which allows Canadians who
      currently hold a valid passport and meet eligibility criteria to renew
      their passport without submitting proof of citizenship or a guarantor
    - A New Guarantor Policy, which allows most Canadian adult passport
      holders to act as guarantors for first-time applicants.

    For more information on these initiatives, please visit Passport Canada's
website at
    Passport application forms can be obtained at any Passport Canada office,
Service Canada Centre or Canada Post office. The form can also be downloaded
from Passport Canada's website.
