Canadian children over 2 years old, who have not applied for a Canadian Citizenship certificate, will not obtain a Canadian passport until they receive their certificate. Therefore they must apply for a Canadian visa presenting the passport of their other nationality.

Canadian citizens, who have lost/been robbed of their proof of Canadian citizenship, must apply for a replacement and, at the same time, may apply for a Canadian passport if the trip is justified.
