Ontario Photo Card Holders Can Now Renew Online

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

The Ontario government is making life easier for Ontario Photo Card holders by providing the option for card renewals online, no longer requiring in-person renewals at a ServiceOntario centre.

The Ontario Photo Card provides Ontarians who do not have a driver’s licence with access to their government-issued identification, making it easier for them to do things such as open a bank account, receive a ballot when voting, and perform any other activities that require official identification.

For those who cannot or choose not to renew online, Ontario Photo Card renewals at a ServiceOntario centre will still be available.

In addition to the new online renewal service, the Ontario Photo Card photo image has been extended from a five-year to a 10-year validity period for all renewals. This allows for the same photo ID image to be used the first time you renew your card, either online or in-person.

The fee for renewing your Ontario Photo Card remains the same at $35.00, whether renewing online or in-person at a ServiceOntario centre.

People can apply for an Ontario Photo Card if you:

    • do not have a driver’s licence
    • are a resident of Ontario, and
    • are 16 years of age and older

Over 40 of the most common ServiceOntario transactions, such as driver’s licence and licence plate sticker renewals, are available 24/7 at ServiceOntario.ca.
