In order to ensure the ongoing safety of our patients and staff, please note that CAMH is maintaining the requirement for universal masking of staff, patients, visitors/essential care partners, contractors/vendors at CAMH. A hospital-approved mask will be required to enter into our buildings and in all common areas. Further, current screening stations and protocols are also being maintained and there will be no change in the requirement for anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or exposure risks to not enter the hospital.
The ID Clinic is a free service that helps CAMH patients obtain identification such as:
Health Cards: The staff 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 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, patients can apply at a Service Canada office for a citizenship card or a permanent resident card.
This service is not a CAMH service. It is hosted at CAMH through an external organization: Neighbourhood Link.
