Current status
Since Oct 1, 2015

With Bill n°35 : An Act to amend the Civil Code as regards civil status, successions and the publication of rights, it's not required anymore.

''SECTION IV
CHANGE OF DESIGNATION OF SEX

71. Every person whose sexual identity does not correspond to the designation of sex that appears in that person's act of birth may, if the conditions prescribed by this Code and by government regulation have been met, have that designation and, if necessary, the person's given names changed.

These changes may in no case be made dependent on the requirement to have undergone any medical treatment or surgical operation whatsoever.'' (Civil Code of Québec)

To qualify to change the sex designation appearing on your act of birth, you must:
- be 18 years of age or over;
- hold Canadian citizenship;
- be domiciled in Québec for at least one year.
If you were born in Québec but live elsewhere, you may also qualify to change your sex designation if you show that such an amendment is not possible in the province or country in which you are domiciled.

If you qualify to apply, you must complete the Application to Change the Sex Designation Appearing on an Act of Birth form and provide the documents indicated on the form.

In particular, you must provide an affidavit in which you affirm:

- that the designation of sex requested is the designation that best corresponds your sexual identity;
- that you assume that sexual identity and intend to continue doing so;
- that you understand the seriousness of the undertaking;
- that your undertaking is voluntary and your consent is given in a free and enlightened manner.
You must also include:

- the affidavit of a person of full age who attests to having known you for at least one year and who confirms that you are fully aware of the seriousness of your application;
- if you have already obtained a change of the designation of sex that appears in your act of birth, you must also include a letter from a physician, a psychologist, a psychiatrist or a sexologist authorized to practice in Canada or in the State in which you are domiciled, who declares having evaluated or followed you and is of the opinion that the change of the designation is appropriate having regard to the affidavit you made in support of your initial application.
