Do you have a birth Certificate to go with the health card?

My birth certificate is in long term storage because I can't afford to get it replaced if it get's lost or damaged... I have a helth card, a SIN card, and thats it. I have no other I.D...

Acceptable forms of photo identification include:

Ontario DriverĀ“s Licence with a photo of the person to whom the licence is issued
A Canadian Passport
Canadian Citizenship Card with a photo of the person to whom the card is issued
Canadian Armed Forces Identification Card
A photo card issued by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), entitled Bring Your ID (BYID)
A Secure Indian Status Card issued by the Government of Canada
A Permanent Resident Card issued by the Government of Canada
A photo card issued under the Photo Card Act, 2008
By law, no one can be required to produce the Ontario Health Card, nor can the health number be collected. You should not ask for the Ontario Health Card as identification, but if offered voluntarily you may accept it at your discretion.


So.. I am telling you bring one of those. If you make me take your health card..,

A birth Certificate + photo ID Can be used. We cannot legally ask for a health card. IF someone were to force us to accept one then the law changes

Basically what Frostscar is trying to say:

If all you have is your health card (one of the new ones, not the old red and white ones), bring it, and present it at Registration.
Don't dig up your birth certificate. Keep it in safekeeping where it belongs.

By law Condition (or any other organization) can not ASK for a health card -- this law is in place to prevent OHIP fraud. However, Frost's position indicates that they will accept it as ID if offered to them. It should meet all of the requirements -- it has your full legal name, your date of birth, and your photo.
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same...

You don't need photo I.D. to use your bank after you set it up, at least in canada anyway XD I've never voted and I'm allergic to alcohol, I don't travel because I can't afford it, and I'm scared of being on highways so I don't Drive >->

I realized that after taking some time to calm down and think about the conversation, Thanks though :)

Ontario also introduced these a couple of years ago for those without a driver's license:

As a side note too all of this. All of these particular ID requirements apply to those drinking at the convention in our space ( IE sponsors that actually want to drink)

If you don't drink, but can prove who you are and your age, then we can work something different out.
