Name & Gender Change Resources

Change of Sex Designation for Saskatchewan Residents

Change of Name, Birthdate or Gender on Student Records
From Government of Saskatchewan – Registrar’s Handbook (Valid from August 1, 2016 to July 31, 2017)
To change a student’s name or birthdate on the SDS, use the Change of Name/Change of Birthdate (Form 10) in Section 7). The principal is required to verify that all required documentation has been received. Do not send copies of this documentation to the Ministry of Education.

Effective August 1, 2016, gender choices on the SDS will be Male, Female or Unspecified. For persons under the age of 18 years, a legal name change is possible with appropriate documentation. Since gender identity is the way people perceive themselves, which may or may not align with their biological sex, the SDS gender field may be changed without legal documentation.’s%20Handbook.pdf

Legal Name Change
In Saskatchewan, you can apply for a legal name change at eHealth (2130 11th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4P 0J5; 1-800-667-7551). All the information you will need can be found on their website.

Once you receive your Legal Name Change certificate and reissued Birth Certificate, you can also update the following:
*Saskatchewan Health Services Card. This can be done at eHealth (2130 11th Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4P 0J5; 1-800-667-7551) or online via their website.
*Driver’s License. This can be done at any SGI Motor License Issuer. You will require your Certificate of Name Change and other proof of identity documents.
*Social Insurance Number. This can be done at any Service Canada location. You will require your Certificate of Name Change and other proof of identity documents.
*If you are a landed immigrant, Immigration records are never changed following a name change (to prove your legal name for identification purposes, you will need to provide your immigration papers along with your Change of Name Certificate). To obtain Citizenship documents showing the new name, contact the Canadian Citizenship office for more information.
