Canadian Digital Proof of Identity change (DPOI)

Posted on November 29, 2017 by CCA Communications Committee

Those camps utilizing Sterling Talent Solutions to complete background checks for staff and volunteers should be aware of recent changes.

Effective December 1, 2017, Canada Post will no longer accept the Canadian Citizenship Card as a primary form of identification. Due to changes to the Canadian Citizenship Card, it is no longer compliant with the requirements for accepted forms of primary identification.

Other forms of accepted primary ID are below.

  • Provincial Driver’s License
  • Foreign Driver’s License
  • Canadian or Foreign Passport
  • Certificate of Indian Status
  • CNIB Card
  • Provincial ID Card
  • Canadian Permanent Resident Card
  • Firearms Possession and Acquisition License

Please note: The Canadian Citizenship Card will continue to be accepted as a secondary form of ID.
