Recently, our Conservative Government announced that Canadians will be able to take advantage of our new and more secure 10-year ePassport when travelling abroad.
ePassports are the new standard for travel documents because their use of advanced technology helps safeguard them against fraud and identity theft. This will help make travel more convenient for Canadians and will help create jobs and growth here at home.
In fact, the new ePassport isn't just a safer option, it is also a better value because it will cost less per year and will need to be renewed less often.
It will also contain images that highlight our country's rich culture and history, including the famous Robert Harris painting depicting our Fathers of Confederation and a picture of Pier 21 in Halifax, where thousands of new Canadians landed between 1928 and 1971.
Our Conservative Government is delivering real results for Canadian families.
