October 3, 2017 (North Bay, ON) – Anthony Rota, Member of Parliament for Nipissing-Timiskaming, will host back-to-back passport clinics in Temiskaming Shores and North Bay next week.
The Temiskaming Shores session takes place Tuesday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Riverside Place.
In North Bay, the clinic will be held Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Northgate Shopping Centre community kiosk (near the parking garage entrance).
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer any passport-related questions and review your application. We will also courier them to the Passport Program on constituents’ behalf. (Typically, processing takes 20 business days, which doesn’t include time in the mail.)
To save time and help us serve you better, please bring your completed application, passport photos, and all supporting documents to the clinic (see THINGS TO BRING…AND OTHER STUFF below). Click here to find the applicable form or stop by a constituency office – 375 Main St. West in North Bay or 112 Whitewood Ave. West, in Temiskaming Shores. Applications will also be available during the clinics.
No appointment is required. Please note, we are unable to act as your guarantor.

THINGS TO BRING…AND OTHER STUFF
For a general passport application:
If this is your first adult passport, if your passport has been expired for more than a year or if you are changing your name, complete the general passport application. For supporting documentation, you’ll need:
- Birth certificate, or Canadian citizenship card or certificate (original only);
- A Declaration of Guarantor (Section 2 of the application). A guarantor is a Canadian citizen, 18 or older, who holds a valid Canadian passport and has known you for at least two years. It can be a relative.
- A photocopy of your driver’s licence or other government-issued photo ID that is signed and dated by your guarantor;
- Two identical passport photos. One must be date-stamped by the photographer to show they were taken within the past six months. The stamped photo must be signed by your guarantor;
- Names and contact information of two “references” (cannot be a relative or your guarantor). Your references must be at least 18 years old and have known you for a minimum of two years
- For a change of name, a copy of a legal document that supports the change (e.g. marriage certificate, adoption order) and your current passport, if still valid.
Simplified renewal application:
If your passport will expire within a year (i.e. early renewal) or has been expired for less than a year, fill out a simplified renewal. For supporting documentation, you’ll need:
- Two identical passport photos (taken within the past six months);
- Your current passport;
- Names and contact information of two “references” (cannot be a relative). Your references must be at least 18 years old and have known you for a minimum of two years.

A guarantor is a Canadian citizen, 18 or older, who holds a valid Canadian passport and knows the parent or legal guardian who is applying on the child’s behalf.
