Acceptable personal ID overview

Examples of acceptable personal identification include:

  • DND 404 driver’s license
  • Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) ID card 1
  • Passport (Canadian or Foreign)
  • Secure certificate of Indian status
  • Driver’s licence (Canadian or Foreign)
  • Firearm Acquisition or Firearm Possession License
  • Health card with photo (where not prohibited)
  • Permanent Resident card
  • Provincial or Territorial identification card

1 The CNIB card and Firearm Acquisition or Firearm Possession License aren’t government-issued but we consider them as acceptable pieces of identification except for transactions that are FINTRAC regulated. FINTRAC regulated transactions include money orders of $3,000 or more, transactions of $10,000 or more in cash in 24 hours, coin sales of $10,000 or more in cash, suspicious or attempted suspicious transactions, or Proof of Identity or digital Proof of Identity services (POI/dPOI) specifically if these relate to a financial product (for example, Tangerine credit card authentication).

Please note:

We’ll verify your identity with an acceptable form of photo ID before accepting proof of residency.
