This arrangement ended in 1947, when the Canadian Citizenship Act was granted Royal Assent and the designation of Canadian citizenship was created.
Beginning in July the following year, Canadian passports were issued to Canadian citizens only.
The lax security has led to numerous cases of misuse of the passport, so the Canadian Government tightened the application requirements from 1970.
At that time, Canadians were British subjects, and Canada shared a common nationality with the United Kingdom; thus, Canadian passports were issued to those British subjects resident in or connected to Canada.They took the form of a "Letter of Request" from the Governor General of Canada.These documents remained in use until, in 1915, Canadian passports were first issued in the British format, a ten section single sheet folder.The issuance of passports falls under the Royal Prerogative.They are issued, in the name of the reigning Canadian monarch (as expressed in the passport note), according to the Canadian Passport Order.
