Who can get the card and how much does it cost?
You can apply for a Manitoba Identification Card if you:
- are a Manitoba resident
- are entitled to be in Canada
- do not already hold a driver’s licence or Manitoba Enhanced Identification Card
If you are under 18, your parents must co-sign your application.
If you have a valid Manitoba driver’s licence but want to replace it with a Manitoba Identification Card, you can go to a Manitoba Public Insurance Service Centre or any Autopac agent, surrender your driver’s licence, and apply for a Manitoba Identification Card for $10. If you are 65 and over, you can surrender your driver’s licence and obtain a Manitoba Identification Card for free.
How much does it cost?
The card costs $20, including the photograph.*
It’s good for up to five years and costs $20 to renew. A valid card may be replaced for $10 if it is lost, destroyed or damaged.
*This fee may be waived under certain circumstances. See an Autopac agent for details.
