Service Canada warns of long wait times due to 'unprecedented surge' in passport applications

State Media: 'The government says it is receiving more than 200,000 calls per day for passport requests at Service Canada.

'That's about 40 times more calls than Service Canada typically received prior to the pandemic, when the agency handled about 5,000 passport requests daily.

'"This unprecedented surge in demand has resulted in appointments filling up quickly," said a statement from Employment and Social Development Canada, which operates Service Canada locations.'
