New section added to Legal - Name Change
« on: November 16, 2005, 08:01:47 am »
I've added a section on changing your name as it applies to the Province of Ontario, in Canada.

Gosh Steph! There you go again. I was just thinking last night that I might do a topic on my name change here in Georgia. I can't say I'll get it done today but I've got some stuff I can add that might be useful we could add to the Wiki.

Arright, you shamed me into it! I added one for British Columbia name change and other documentation.

I guess we should do one for federal documents as well. I've done my SIN, but haven't had my citizenship card returned yet, so I don't know if what I did was right.

Heh, and I managed to correct where I put the information. I hadn't realized there was a separate section for drivers' licences. Moved the DL stuff to there and kept the name change stuff where it was.

Ok Dennis, I just updated Ontario and added a section for the Federal Government, check it out and see if there is anything Canadians should consider.

Chat later,

OK, I added one thing for those of us who were not born here. It takes FOREVER to get a citizenship card, and if you don't change your SIN first, you're hooped.

I sent my change in to citizenship in August. Got a letter in September saying it would take 5-7 months. I just got a letter last week that said it would take "longer than expected". So I'm trapped in the country for god knows how long.

The link in Ontario's information doesn't work. It redirects to http://www.ontario.ca/func/keyword/error.htm


ETA: It seems to be a problem with the website itself, I even tried finding it through the home page and it directs me to there.

Thanks for mentioning the dead link, krptcmschfmkr128. It moved on us, again.

The corrected, correct link is Changing Your Name (Ontario). Corrected again 2/28
