Earthquake in Haiti: Passport Canada participates in support effort

Passport Canada is working with Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada to help Canadians in Haiti return to Canada. We have staff dedicated to this effort working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For media queries regarding the situation in Haiti, please contact the Media Relations Office of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada at 613-995-1874.

Friends and relatives in Canada seeking information on Canadian citizens believed to be in the affected area should contact Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada at 1- 800-387-3124, or, for those in Ottawa (613) 943-1055, or by sending an email to sos@international.gc.ca.

For those who wish to contribute, the best way is to donate money-not clothing or food-to the registered charity of your choice.

The Government of Canada announced it will match the generosity of Canadians dollar for dollar. These contributions will be made directly-donors need not contact the Government of Canada.
