The IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) recommends that parents traveling with children under the age of 16 print a copy of the Canada passport Signature policy (PDF, 600.51 KB) and bring it with them in case they are asked to sign a passport for their child.
Canadian children – even newborns – are required to travel with their own passport. Canada’s Passport Program has issued a reminder to international border officials that parents or legal guardians must never sign their child’s travel documents.
