Consent Form

Why is a consent form required?

A consent form is required pursuant to the Canadian Privacy Act, which states that personal information shall not, without the consent of the individual to whom it relates, be disclosed.


A properly filled in consent form will ensure timely processing of your order! Print and hand sign directly on the printed form. Each individual 16 years of age or older must sign on their own and the signature must be consistent with the official signature on the passport. Please review the instructions 

Please note:

If your file has the information or details of any individual (sponsor, spouse, co-signor, family etc.), it is recommended to include their consent forms to comply with the Canadian privacy laws.


This is even if the individuals were not included as applicants in your visa application. The lack of consent can lead to delays as the officers are required to redact any information on the individuals whose consent is not provided.

It is recommended to upload a copy of your passport biographical pages (i.e. photo & signature pages) of all applicants along with your consent forms. This is not mandatory but recommended as it can expedite the processing of your GCMS notes application.
