when i went to cuba, i got my passport from the civic building at scarborough town center..

you need to get some passport photos taken (any camera shop can do this on a walk-in), and you need to get them witnessed by either your doctor, a priest, lawyer.. any really official kinda person that knows you personally.

i think it was 50 for the passport, can't remember exactly

Get picture taken from a passport photo place.
Get them signed by people who can sign them.
Take them to the Passport Office.
Fill out forms.
Pay ~$65
Wait about 10 days.

Next time use the search function HHC freak.

Go as soon as you can. Don't leave it to the last minute. You have to find a professional to sponsor you and get pics. I got mine in mississauga on Burnhamthorpe and spent the whole day waiting in massive lines. I think I picked mine up 10 days after i gave in my application.

My buddy got rejected from the passport office this morning because the guy said he had a shadow behind his ear. He had to go get new pictures done and then was told the pictures were not cut properly, so he had to go back again! Apparently the new restrictions on photos are a pain in the ass, so make sure you get good passport photos done.

the passport office decided that they would only accept photos with a "neutral" expression because customs agents were having a difficult time identifying people who were not "neutral" in their photos.
lucky for me they decided this the day AFTER i got the photo taken for my new passport, so i had to go BACK and get another set done. fucking jerks.

I think you live in Hamilton if I remember.

Go to the passport office in Jackson sqare. Its in the office towers, 3rd floor I think. Theres a camera place in the mall to take the pictures too. It takes about 5 mins and costs about $10 for the pics.

Get the pics signed by a guarentor and fill out the application. (you can get passport apps at any post office, even the ones at shoppers)

Take the signed pics, the application and 65$ to the passport office - wait in line for about 2 hours and hand in your shit. Careful, because a lot of offices won't take debit.

You should be able to pick up your passport in 2 weeks. If you are lazy like me and leave it till the last minute, you can pay and extra $30 procrastination fee and pick it up in 5 days.

Make sure you bring your birth cert and 2 other pieces of ID to hand the application in. I'm fairly sure they need originals of everything.
