January 8, 2019
The program delivery instructions on the exceptions to change of name requirements have been updated to provide guidance to clients who have already received a change of name or gender identifier and who wish to obtain a verification of status, for a $30 fee, to link their previous and new names or gender identifiers.
This process applies to clients who currently hold Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada documents and who have already received a change of name or gender identifier.
