On Friday, November 6, law students and lawyer volunteers from Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) will offer assistance to New Brunswick students who wish to change their identification information. 

(Pro Bono Students CanadaFacebook).

What will the I.D. clinic provide?

UNB Pro Bono students and volunteers will work alongside Imprint to aid transgender, non-binary, and others that want to change their legal names, sex, or gender on their various pieces of identification.

The advice provided is for any resident of New Brunswick and it will cover changes on birth certificates, documents such as passports, SIN numbers, driver’s licenses, Medicare cards, and the name showing on their UNB student I.D. 

According to Ash Arsenault, a clinic volunteer, the sessions and the advice will be completely free, including the notarization of documents. The clinic website also encourages those interested in the service to review this document before the session, which includes a checklist of documents and more preparation material. 

How can students sign up?

Students are welcome to book a session by registering through this link. They will be scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Microsoft Teams.
