Examples of Government Issued Photo Identification

  When you are required to verify the identity of individual clients or third parties, you can use the government issued photo identification method. This method of verification requires licensees to verify a client’s identity by relying on a valid, original, and current federal, provincial, or territorial government issued document containing the individual’s name, photograph, and unique identifier number. A foreign government issued photo identification is acceptable if it is equivalent to a Canadian issued photo identification document. However, photo identification documents issued by a municipal government, whether Canadian or foreign, are not acceptable. Privacy laws in Ontario also prohibit the use of an individual’s health card for identification or verification purposes (see the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario’s website).

  The government issued photo identification document must show the individual’s name, include a photo of the individual, and have a unique identifier number. To assist licensees in complying with the government issued photo identification method of verification, below are examples of acceptable government issued photo identification documents that may be used for verifying the identity of an individual. Licensees should note that this is not an exhaustive list.
