Travelling with a same-sex spouse

Although same-sex marriages are legal in Canada, they are not recognized in many countries. Same-sex civil unions are more widely recognized. Attempting to enter another country as a same-sex married couple may result in refusal by local officials. In addition, homosexual activity is a criminal offence in certain countries and could result in a prison or death sentence. Consult our country travel advice and advisories or the destination country’s embassy or consulate in Canada for specific information. You cannot use a Certificate of Canadian Citizenship instead of a Canadian passport to travel abroad.

A Certificate of Canadian Citizenship is not valid for travelling.

Canadian passport is the only reliable and universally accepted travel and identification document available to Canadians for the purpose of international travel. Canadian citizens returning to Canada who present other documents, such as a Certificate of Canadian Citizenship, birth certificate, provincial driver’s licence or foreign passport, instead of a Canadian passport, may face delays or be denied boarding by transport companies.
