Cornwall - Jul. 25, 2011 - Starting today, people in the Stormont - Dundas - South Glengarry area can apply for Ontario’s new photo identification card.

The new government-issued ID is available at 21 ServiceOntario locations across the province, including Cornwall. It will be available at all locations by 2012.

This secure card will make it easier for people aged 16 years and over who do not have a driver’s licence to open a bank account, make travel arrangements or perform other activities that require official ID.

This is part of the McGuinty government’s plan to make it easier for families to access government services, while creating jobs and economic opportunities in Ontario.

“We are helping make life easier for people who do not have a driver’s licence and need an official form of government ID to access services.” said Jim Brownell, MPP for Stormont - Dundas - South Glengarry.

“Our government is providing Ontarians who do not drive with secure and accessible government-issued ID. This new photo card will help make life easier for many Ontarians,” said Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Transportation.
