Online Renewals for Ontario Photo Card Holders

Published on July 02, 2021

Vaughan-Woodbridge – It is now easier for Ontario Photo Card holders to renew their cards online. 

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.

“Online renewals provide greater convenience and accessibility for people across the province,” said MPP Michael Tibollo “By giving Ontario Photo Card holders an alternative option to renew in-person, we’re helping vulnerable populations and those who have difficulty attending a physical centre keep their ID up-to-date.”

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.
