The instructions on sex or gender identifiers on IRCC documents and in IRCC systems have been updated to allow temporary residents to obtain a change of sex or gender identifier on their IRCC documents. This change complies with the new IRCC Sex and Gender Identifier Policy, which aligns with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s Policy Direction to Modernize the Government of Canada’s Sex and Gender Information Practices.
