Document Developments: Quebec to offer ‘X’ gender option for driver’s licenses, health cards

Quebec City, Quebec — Quebec citizens who do not identify as either male or female will soon be able to opt for an ‘X’ gender marker on their driver’s licenses and health cards.

Both Quebec’s automobile insurance board and its public health insurance board have been informed of the government’s decision to add a third gender option to government identification cards.

Similarly, both boards, the RAMQ and the SAAQ, say that clients who have requested a nonbinary marker on their cards will be contacted shortly to discuss the next steps in the process.

The province already allows a nonbinary gender marker on birth certificates and death certificates, but unlike other provinces, it has not offered the option on driver’s licenses or health cards until now.
