Update: see previous posts – June 10, 2011 New Ontario Government Photo I.D. Card (For Those Without a Driver’s Licence), January 20, 2009 Toronto Downtown “Drivers & Vehicles Licencing Office” Relocated
On June 9, 2011 ServiceOntario announced that it will begin to make the Ontario Photo Card available as early as July 25, 2011 at 20 selected Service Ontario Centres and at all 300 ServiceOntario Centres by 2012. All the other provinces had already offered the people in their provinces government issued photo identification cards, with the exception of Ontario and Quebec. Ontario got on board quite late in this regard.
Unfortunately, ServiceOntario did not indicate at which of its’ twenty (20) selected ServiceOntario centres where this new I.D. card would be available. fightyourtickets emailed ServiceOntario and requested the specific twenty (20) locations where 1.5 million Ontarians could apply for the government-issued photo I.D. cards and did not receive a reply.
Now, ServiceOntario has indicated that its’ hours will be extended until 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays and will now be open on Saturday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
ServiceOntario is expanding its hours of service to help Ontario families access government services like driver’s licence and health card renewal, where and when they need them.
More than 100 ServiceOntario centres across the province will now stay open until 8 p.m. on Thursday evenings and will open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Unfortunately, ServiceOntario has not indicated which of its’ 100 ServiceOntario centres will stay open later on Thursdays or on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. Like the new government-issued Photo Card, Ontarians are left guessing as to the locations that ServiceOntario is referring to.
