Hi folks! So in the ever increasing game of security, Canada has finally joined the rest of the world and has introduced chip based passports!

Coming July 1st, 2013 Canada will be issuing passports that are chipped based. This is great news for Canadians because Canada passports are targeted by people to use in nefarious activities.

This is because Canadians typically don’t require visas to visit other countries. So a person with ill intentions could use a Canadian passport to easily get into another category.

Thanks to the great world of IT, Canadian passports will hopefully be a little more secure. You can read more here.
