Name Changes

The official register of registrants, or the registration roll, must contain each registrant's full legal name. Be sure to notify us promptly if your name changes by submitting the required information noted below.

Also, ensure your contact information and communication preferences are up-to-date by signing in to the Manage My Membership section of the website.

If you are a registered member, associate member or special permit holder:

  • and use a stamp or seal, you will need to order a new one once we have updated the register (for details, go to the Stamps & Certificates tab once you sign-in to the Manage My Membership page);
  • you do not have to order a new certificate unless you have made a legal name change as noted below.

Name Change as the Result of Marriage

If your name change is the result of marriage, you must submit a copy of your marriage certificate.


Name Change as the Result of Divorce

  • a copy of your birth certificate; and
  • a copy of a piece of identification bearing your married name.

Legal Name Change

If your name change is the result of a legal name change, you must submit a copy of your Certificate of Change of Name.
If you are a registered or associate member, or a special permit holder you will be required to order a new certificate.  Contact the registration department for details.
