Name Changes

Your safety and wellbeing are our highest priority.

It is now possible to change your preferred first name using Evolve Self-Service. Here’s how:

If you are in the process of changing your legal identification, the Fleming Paralegal Program offers support with documentation (temporarily unavailable due to COVID & campus closures), and the Fleming Colleagues have created a bursary that is available to help with some of the cost. For more information, please contact or   

Trans ID Clinic Pilot Project

Important Information for potential clients:
  • Eligible participants will have the cost of their applications covered. Eligibility will be determined after a participant’s intake appointment and depends on the person’s income and household members, age (16+), and be within our catchment area. Potential participants are encouraged to call us so that we can try to work around their individual circumstances. Students can also apply for the Fleming Name Change Bursary to cover costs.
  • Intake appointments and form-filling support will be given by Chrys (they/them) and Alex (she/her), two third year law students who are volunteering with PCLC. The applications will then be commissioned by Lawyers from PCLC and will be submitted to Service Canada by PCLC staff.
  • The clinic will be virtual, and will do their absolute best to accommodate needs around lack of access to technology, funds, etc.
