Ontario is introducing government-issued photo ID for the 1.5 million residents who do not drive. This initiative will make it easier for those who do not have a license and require proof of identity for purposes such as cashing cheques or accessing government services.
The cards can be obtained by non-drivers over the age of 16 years at selected ServiceOntario centres starting late July 2011. Rollout to the rest of the province will take place throughout 2012. Cost for the ID is $35.
