This. I think you need to get a lawyer that can track him down. Unless he signs over his rights, you will legally have to get his consent for lots of things, not just leaving the country. 

Quoting crescentstar2:

Is he on his birth certificate? If not, you don't have to do anything.

You can't get one unless he signs his rights away.

There are ways around it... check out the application paperwork. I think there's a stipulation that if you have 3 (I think) witnesses to attest that he hasn't had contact then they'll put it through. But check the app to be sure. We looked into it a few years ago, but never ended up needing the passport.

A child under 16 shouldn't need a passport. I am Canadian and I was always told that a birth certificate and OHIP card is fine.

I believe you can post an ad in the newspaper of his last known town and give him so many days for respond. You should contact the Passport people and ask them if this is correct. Then after he doesn't respond you can get 3 witnesses to sign a notarized paper stating that you have made a public notice, gave him 30 days to respond, he has not responded and you have not seen or heard from him in however many years.
