Establishing gender for citizenship applications

Important notice

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada accepts provincial or territorial documents to establish gender for citizenship applications. Amended documents showing a new sex designation, such as amended birth certificates, legal orders and court orders indicating the updated sex designation, are acceptable. However, if the applicant is requesting a gender that is different from the one on their provincial or territorial birth certificate or immigration documents, see the procedures on change of sex designation.
