IMMIGRATION, REFUGEES AND CITIZENSHIP CANADA

Notice requesting comments on a proposal to amend the Canadian Passport Order

Notice is hereby given that the Department is seeking written comments from all interested parties on a proposal to amend the Canadian Passport Order to introduce general authorities for the use of electronic means and tools in the Passport Program.

Background

The Canadian Passport Order (“the Order”) governs the issuance, refusal, cancellation and revocation of Canadian passports and the imposition of a period of refusal of passport services. The Order specifies application and eligibility requirements and identifies to whom passports may be issued.

The Government of Canada is committed to improving the client experience for Canadians applying for passports. It is also committed to establishing the necessary framework to support modernization efforts across the Passport Program, as committed to under the Passport Program Modernization Initiative.

The Passport Program Modernization Initiative is a multi-year, complex project focused on improving the Passport Program’s current issuance system. The new passport issuance platform will increase efficiency, strengthen integrity, and lay a solid foundation for the Program to introduce future business improvements.

In support of this commitment, the Department is proposing to amend the Order to support the modernization of the Passport Program by providing general authorities for the use of electronic means and tools, including automated decision making.

Automation will not replace decision makers. Automation is another tool to support officers in managing increasing passport application volumes.

Automated decision making in the passport context would only be used for routine, positive decisions or low-risk situations and would not replace the role of an officer in reviewing and deciding high-risk or complex cases such as first-time applications or children’s applications.

Comments

The public is invited to provide comments and input into the proposed amendments described above before the amendments to the Order are published in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Anyone may, within 15 days of the publication of this notice, provide their comments on this notice of intent, in writing, by email at IRCC.Order-Decret.IRCC@cic.gc.ca or by fax at 613‑952‑9187.

PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE

Appointment opportunities

We know that our country is stronger — and our government more effective — when decision-makers reflect Canada’s diversity. The Government of Canada has implemented an appointment process that is transparent and merit-based, strives for gender parity, and ensures that Indigenous peoples and minority groups are properly represented in positions of leadership. We continue to search for Canadians who reflect the values that we all embrace: inclusion, honesty, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. Together, we will build a government as diverse as Canada.

We are equally committed to providing a healthy workplace that supports one’s dignity, self-esteem and the ability to work to one’s full potential. With this in mind, all appointees will be expected to take steps to promote and maintain a healthy, respectful and harassment-free work environment.

The Government of Canada is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians from across the country who are interested in the following positions.

Current opportunities

The following opportunities for appointments to Governor in Council positions are currently open for applications. Every opportunity is open for a minimum of two weeks from the date of posting on the Governor in Council Appointments website.
