Since I have moved, I’ve been all about letting the appropriate organizations know of my new address. The latest thing I realize that I need to update is my passport. To find out how to do this, I search Google for “canada passport” and then search for “address change” on the Passport Canada web site.

I eventually made my way to an FAQ that answers my question. I quote:

A change of address does not invalidate a passport. Please cross out the old address on page 4 and write the new one in the space above the old address. Do not use correction fluid. If the space in the passport is insufficient, write the new information on a separate piece of paper and insert it into the passport.

Simple enough! Wait. What? Cross out my old address and write the new one? Seriously? It sounds like I could have just made my passport myself. Jeez.
