I’ve been fortunate enough to travel so much in the past three years that I actually filled up my passport. Granted, there were a handful of full pages taken up by visas for China, India and Brazil but still … a full passport is a wonderful thing! Not wanting to be caught with an invalid passport, I started looking into adding more pages, as I know you can do with American passports. Turns out that you can no longer add pages to Canadian passports. Once it’s full, you have to apply for a brand new one … at the not-so-low cost of $87. Canadian passports are only valid for five years (compared to US passports, which are valid for 10), which means that we’re spending a lot more money to keep our passports up-to-date. It feels like a cash grab to me. Or are there good reasons I’m not aware of? What gives? Any idea?
