Ontario introduces new Photo ID Card for People who don’t Drive

Ontario is introducing a new photo identification card that will make it easier for people who do not have a driver’s licence to travel, open a bank account, and perform any other activities that require official ID.

The new, secure card will be recognized as government-issued identification for Ontarians 16 and over who do not drive.

Ontarians will be able to apply for the photo card at about 20 selected ServiceOntario centres across the province by the end of July, and at all 300 locations by 2012.

Ontarians with disabilities, seniors and other advocacy groups provided input on the design and availability of the card.
