Excellent. I was concerned, using an online service for the first time, but the photos arrived promptly, AND with the correct, handwritten info on the back. Thank you!

My photo for PR card was rejected the first time. Glad I found passportphotonow. Send the digital image and Bruce shipped my photos in a few hours (super quick). I got them 2 days later. And of course, they are accepted this time. Kudos to Bruce. Very good work. Recommend passportphotonow for any of your photo needs. Cheers, SK

I sent in my photo twice and was rejected twice for apparently not falling within set specifications. Frustrated and disappointed, I tried passportphotonow. The photo was quickly printed and sent to me. A couple of weeks after sending to IRCC I just received an update that it has been accepted. I'm grateful to passportphotonow for solving my problem. Thank you.

I submitted our photo on Sunday and had the pictures in my hand by Wednesday. The process was quick and all communications were courteous. We had used this service before with great success in the past and will likely do so in the future when the need arises. Thank you!

We went to couple of photographers in our location but unfortunately CIC did not approve our photographs. Later we found Bruce online and we quickly asked him to format our photos according to Canada PR specifications. CIC did not reject our photos this time! I liked the quick service. The way Bruce had the photos packed and delivered was very impressive. Would recommend for people looking for Canada PR photographs.

Excellent service! I drove all over the city trying to find a place that will do the Canadian size passport photos, all the places I went to (6 different places) only do US size (2x2). Wish I knew about your website/service before I wasted my time (and gas). I sent in my photos 22 Jan and I had them by 24 Jan! Thank you!

Testimonials for Canadian Permanent Resident card Photos

Page last updated  12/13/2019

Two (2) identical photographs must be submitted,  They should be 50mm x 70mm (2" x 2¾") in Width and Height.  They should show a close up of your face and the top of your shoulders so that your face takes up between 45% - 51% of the face or 31mm to 36mmfrom the chin to the crown of the head. The photo must clearly show the person's facial features in a straight forward position from the tip of the chin to the crown of the head as well as the left and right sides of the face.  In the case of voluminous hair, it must be ensured that the head (including the hairstyle) is fully depicted without reducing the size of the face, if possible.  The face must be centered in the photo and no more than six months old, to ensure an up to date likeness. 
 BackgroundThe background should be white.  The background should not have any pattern. The photo should show only the person to be photographed (no other persons or objects in the photo). No shadows must be shown on the background.



You need to take the photo with a neutral expression with your mouth closed, not laughing, smiling, frowning and not showing your teeth. With both eyes open, contrived expressions such as raised eyebrows or squinting are not acceptable.
 Head Position The head of the person photographed should be neither at an angle nor turned (portrait style).  Your head must be square to the camera; your face can not be slightly rotated and or tilted. Your face and eyes must be straight towards the camera so we can see an equal amount of each ear and cheek.
 Eyes & Line of  sightThe person in the photo must look directly into the camera. The eyes must be open and dearly visible and may not be covered by hair or spectacle frames.  The camera lens must be at the eye level of the person being photographed , not from above or below
The face must be evenly illuminated by the flash on the camera. Reflections or shadows on the face as well as red eyes must be avoided.  
 Photo Quality
The photo should be printed on high-quality paper with a print resolution of at least 600 dpi (especially when taken with a digital camera). The photo must be neutral in color and skin tones should appear natural. The photo should have no creases or impurities . Photograph cannot be manipulated, for example, by removing spots or softening lines.  Photos must be in color.
 Wearing  GlassesPlease take off your glasses; it will guarantee your photo passing. If you must wear your glasses there cannot be any glare anywhere on the glass and the frame cannot cover any part of your eyes. The eyes must be clearly recognizable (reflections from glasses, tinted glasses or sunglasses are not permitted). 
 Head wearGenerally speaking, head wear is not permitted. Exceptions are possible, especially for religious reasons. In such cases, the face must be visible from the lower tip of the chin to the forehead. No shadows should be visible on the face.

The face must be sharply focused in all areas, rich in contrast and clear. 

 Back of PhotoThe photographer (that us) must put the name and address of the photographer or studio and the date the photo was taken must be provided directly on the back of one photo (see illustration to the left). The photographer may use a stamp or hand write this information. Stick-on labels are unacceptable.
You must write the name and date of birth of the subject (you will write this).

Infants or very small children who are unable to support themselves should be photographed

lying down from above.  Hands, arms, etc. used to support the child should not be visible.
