to access health care, sources of income such as pensions, and other services.
Health Cards: The
at the clinic can issue a special letter for patients to take
to a Service Ontario office, where they will receive a temporary
document with their health card number. Once their health card is
processed and ready to be issued, it can be picked
up at the ID Clinic onsite.
Citizenship and Immigration: Individuals
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, patients
can apply at a Service Canada office for
a Citizenship Card or a Permanent Resident Card.
The clinic is located at 1001 Queen Street West in Unit 4, Basement, in the room labelled “Classroom”
right across from the elevator doors; and is available on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday of the month; from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
