It will be easier to identify yourself in Cornwall and SD and G, even without a driver’s licence.
The provincial government is making an official government-issued photo ID, known as the Ontario Photo Card, more accessible to eastern Ontario residents.
They can be picked up at any of the following locations in and around Cornwall at Service Onario offices:
– 113 Second Street East, Cornwall
– 720 14th Street West, Unit 2, Cornwall
– 8-5th Street West, Morrisburg
– 12028 Dawley Drive, Winchester
– 101 Main Street North, Alexandria
– 179 Main Street East, Hawkesbury.
The photo ID card will be offered in the Cornwall-area by December and will cost $35. The identification card has the same security features as the driver’s licence to help prevent fraud and identity theft. It can be used to travel, open a bank account and do anything that requires official photo ID.
More than 55,000 people have applied for the Ontario Photo Card since July, 2011.
