Manitoba Identification Card

What documents do you need?

You will need supporting documents that prove your:

  • Birth date
  • Full legal name
  • Photograph
  • Manitoba residency and permanent address (please note that two supporting documents are required and they must be dated within 90 days of the date of application)
  • Entitlement to be in Canada

You can use a wide range of documents to prove each part of your identity. These documents must be originals, not photocopies. Electronic scans of these documents will be kept on file by Manitoba Public Insurance.

For a list of documents that may be used to establish your identity for a Manitoba Identification Card, please view the Establishing your identity brochure. Paper copies are available at Autopac agents or Manitoba Public Insurance Service Centres. Note: For an Enhanced Driver’s Licence, identity requirements also include your signature and proof of Canadian citizenship.

If you cannot provide one of the acceptable documents to prove your photograph, signature (for Enhanced cards) or residency, in exceptional cases Manitoba Public Insurance may accept a completed Guarantor Declaration instead. A Guarantor Declaration may also be used as a supporting document for Manitoba residency if you only have one approved document with your address on it. You can download a copy of the Guarantor Declaration form or you can ask an Autopac agent or Manitoba Public Insurance Service Centre representative to print the form for you.
