On the passport renewal form for canada it asks for "Documents that Support your ID"

Can I use my Wife Permanent Resident Card. It is the only card that has the correct new last name. If I am allowed to use that It says I can photocopy it. What other types of documents have you used to support your ID.

she does have a ssn but it says it must have bearer's name and signature and there is no signature on her ssn card or permanent resident card which is why im freaking out lol

I actually just applied for a new passport in my married name. My mom mailed in from Canada Post, and the lady who worked there took a look at it and said I did not have "enough identification" to prove my change of name. Turns out even though I was submitting my marriage license, SS card copy, PR card, my drivers license was still in my maiden name. I actually quickly changed my drivers license and submitted it that way.

These are the documents I submitted:

-passport (original)

-birth certificate (original)

-marriage license (copy)

-drivers license (married name, copy)

-SS card (married name, copy, blanked out first 5 numbers for safety purposes)

-health insurance card (married name, copy)

On all the copied documents, I had my "Guarantor" sign & date them.

Good luck!

Hi Carvin317

When I applied/renewed (in person at a Passport Canada office) for my Canadian passport in my married name last year (2009)...This is what I used, as identification (note: I showed them the original, and they gave it back to me a few minutes later, after they looked at it briefly)....

1) Canadian Citizenship Card (in maiden name, and was of me when I was a child, but still proves my Canadian citizenship...)

2) Former Expired Canadian Passport (in maiden name with married name notation)

3) US Marriage Certificate (in maiden name and married name)

4) US Green Card/Permanent Resident Card (in married name)

5) US NYS Driver's License (in married name)

And they had no problems with that....:thumbs:

Hope this helps too. Good luck on your wife's passport renewal and the rest of your immigation journey.

P.S. You can't use a SSN as ID...As...1) That is not on the list of identification documents they accept for Canadian passports 2) That card and that number on that card is supposed to be kept private and confidential (heck, it even says so on the card not to carry it with you). Keep that card in a safe place, instead!

And yes, do ask your wife to sign the front of her SSN card, as an SSN card is not valid without that signature....

On the passport renewal form for canada it asks for "Documents that Support your ID"

Can I use my Wife Permanent Resident Card. It is the only card that has the correct new last name. If I am allowed to use that It says I can photocopy it. What other types of documents have you used to support your ID.

How can you get the married name notation in the passport?

AandB-Unfortunately, Passport Canada does not do this anynore...:(.....

They did away with it in June 2007, and I did mine only a few weeks/months before they did away with it..lol..

Basically, it was an extra page that they put in the Canadian passport that said..

"The bearer's married surname is (insert married surname here)...", with a stamp and a seal on it...

It costs about $20 or so CDN to get that done...Which at the time was a bargain, instead of applying for a new passport at $100, if one still had some time left on their current passport....

And I had no problems travelling before, with that married name notation.....

I guess Passport Canada wanted the extra cash, and did away with that option....

So now they make all people apply for a new passport if they wanted it in their married name, and on top of that, they can't used the simplified process either.....:angry:

So that's what I had to do when my Canadian passport expired last year...Had to apply all over again....

Lol..and the funny thing about my situation is..I wouldn't have had to get a new Candian passport..if it wasn't for the USCIS and their delays.....(but that's another story...)....

I'm still debating whether or not I should renew my current Canadian passport, after it expires in 2014...

Oh well..I got a few years to mull about it....

It could be worse...the American passport...oh boy...that's even worse to get.....(that's another story...)

Nevertheless, good luck with renewing your Canadian passport and good luck with your immigration journey too.
