This brings to seven the number of offices in Quebec where it is possible to withdraw the precious document, and the fourth in Greater Montreal.

In addition to this centre, Service Canada has announced that it has opened four others, including two in Ontario, one in Alberta and one in British Columbia.

“Adding this service to these offices will also reduce queues at other offices in larger cities,” said Service Canada Minister Karina Gould.

To pick up your passport at a point of sale, you must make a request to Service Canada.

“We are currently trying to reduce the backlog and bring service standards back to normal, and we are taking all necessary measures to improve the experience of Canadians and make our services more accessible,” assured Ms. Gould.

According to Service Canada figures, 605,440 passports have been issued across the country since April 1.

The pace of deliveries has increased in recent weeks due to increased staff numbers and process optimization.

For the week of July 11-17 alone, 48,481 passports were issued.
