Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

An arrest warrant is not grounds for the denial of a passport. So it is likely your friend will have no trouble getting a passport.

But it is possible that your friend will be arrested at the border upon reentry to Canada as his passport will be scanned and the outstanding charges and arrest warrant will come to light.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
