Gender Designation Change
If you are undergoing or have completed sex reassignment surgery, and want to change the gender designation on your driver’s licence, the following documents are required:
- A letter from the applicant specifying the change requested. This letter needs to include the applicant’s full name, current address, driver’s licence number and the name and address of the physician who has signed an opinion letter in support of the change.
- A letter, on the letterhead of a physician licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, and signed by the physician, in which the physician states that:
i. the physician has examined or treated the driver who is requesting the change in sex designation on the driver’s licence; and.
ii. it is the opinion of the physician that the change in the sex designation on the driver’s licence is appropriate.
The Ministry will review the application to ensure that the documents meet MTO’s requirements and are in order.
- Full surgery is not required as a condition for sex designation changes.
É ou não um país moderno? Achei o máximo isso… Enquanto em alguns países as pessoas que mudam de sexo têm que passar por constrangimentos, no Canadá existem mecanismos que não discriminam, pelo contrário, incluem essas pessoas na sociedade.
