Ontario to Issue Gender-Neutral Licenses

Stick a fork in Ontario:

Ontario announced Wednesday that it will introduce gender-neutral driver’s licences and health cards beginning early next year.

In 2017, people will be able to select M (male), F (female) or X (gender-neutral) for their identification cards issued by the province.

The move follows another that began June 13 when Ontario began issuing health cards that didn’t show a person’s sex or gender on the front. Cardholders will receive a new card that doesn’t indicate a sex designation the next time their Ontario health card is renewed. A new card can be issued earlier through Service Ontario.
