McGill’s Union for Gender Empowerment and Legal Information Clinic are collaborating to host a workshop on legal name change. Case workers from the Legal Information Clinic will present on the process of legally changing your name in Quebec and Canada, including the process of obtaining legal documents with the correct name and for name change within McGill’s bureaucracy. There will be a Q&A following the presentation, and additional resources and referrals available.

Food will be provided during the workshop (details to come)! Please feel free to message us your dietary restrictions if you plan on attending, so that we can do our best to serve everyone!

This workshop is being hosted with trans people in mind, but will include information applicable to any name change situation. It is open to all members of the Montreal community. Admission is free.

Note that LICM case workers are able to provide legal information, but not legal advice, as per Quebec law.

The event will be held at 680 Sherbrooke, Room 110. There is a universal access button to the building’s front entrance and the room is located on the first floor, with step-free access. Degendered washrooms will be available, but unfortunately located up a flight of stairs. There is step-free access to gendered washrooms. The building has fluorescent lighting but we will be using natural lighting. The presentation will be given in English, but presenters will be able to answer questions in French. We ask that all attendees be as scent-free as possible.
