gender neutral drivers license ontario

Ontario will issue gender neutral licenses & health cards

If you go to renew your health card or driver's licence in Toronto, you might notice a few changes. That's because the province of Ontario is introducing gender neutral options for both pieces of identification.

By early 2017, you'll be able to select "X" (instead of "M" or "F") on your driver's licence and for your health card, you'll be able to leave the gender field blank altogether.

As of now, you can get a gender neutral health card right now (for free) through ServiceOntario, reports the Canadian Press. The provincial Liberals are implementing the changes to ensure fairness and equality for citizens who don't identify their gender in binary terms.
