    Hi,

    I’ve finally taken the plunge and applied for a name change.  I am working with a pro bono lawyer who is also a trans woman.  We have just today sent in the first phase of my name change.  She acted as my notary and stamped the application.  I went to the RCMP office and had my fingerprints taken.  Long story short, it is now off to the government agency that grants said requests.  Hopefully, it will be done by the end of January and the name change will be complete.  However, it will not change my sex designation even though I’ll have the name.  To change the sex designation I have to send in an application to another province.  Even though I live in BC, I was born in Ontario and have to apply there to have my birth certificate changed to reflect my gender.  Then when that gets returned I can have my DL changed, medical changed, passport, etc, etc.  Quite the process.

      Yes, it is a process. I think the thing to remember is that all of those documents came into play over a number of years and, for example, the Birth Certificate was was all transparent to you. Now, the changes to all of the documents will all happen in a relatively short period of time. I think that’s why it feels like it is a complicated, convoluted process.

      Good Luck!!
