The ID Clinic is a free service that helps CAMH client/patients to obtain identification they need to access health care, sources of income such as pensions, and other services.
OHIP cards: The staff at the clinic can issue a special letter for clients/patients to take to a Service Ontario office, where they will receive a temporary document with their OHIP number. After three weeks they can pick up their new OHIP cards at the ID Clinic.
Citizenship and Immigration: Individuals born in Canada can obtain a Birth Certificate through the clinic and those born outside of Canada can get a Verification of Status (formerly called Record of Landing). After receiving those documents, clients/patients can apply at Service Canada office for a Citizenship Card ($75) or a Permanent Resident Card ($50).
The clinic is located in the lobby of Unit 1; and is available on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday of the month; from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This service is not a CAMH service, but hosted at CAMH through an external organization: Neighbourhood Link.
