Ontario Photo Card

An Ontario photo card is a government-issued photo identification that will allow non-drivers aged 16 years of age and over to access government, financial or business services that require proof of identity.

Before You Start

To apply for an Ontario photo card, you must be a non-driving resident of Ontario, 16 years of age and over. If you have a driver's licence, you must surrender your driver's licence in order to apply for a photo card. Your Driver's licence will be cancelled.

Before you visit one of the ServiceOntario locations to apply for a photo card, you will be required to provide valid original identity documents that prove legal name, date of birth and signature. Acceptable identification includes a birth certificate, passport, citizenship card and permanent resident card.
