New gender identity options for driver’s licence and photo ID cards
Nova Scotia is giving people more options for gender identity on birth certificates, driver’s licences and photo ID cards. People can now choose to have X as an option for gender identity or have no gender displayed.
Nova Scotians also have the option to remove the sex designation from the front of their health cards.
The fee to change the gender indicator will be waived and change of sex indicator services are also now available to people born outside the province.
