Imprint Trans ID Clinic

In partnership with Imprint Youth Association and McInnes Cooper


Individuals who want to update their name and gender marker on government documents face a frustratingly complex process. This frustration is amplified by feelings of vulnerability: disclosure of one’s trans status increases their risk of discrimination and violence.


The Imprint Trans ID Clinic ("Clinic") hopes to resolve this issue. In a trans-positive and inclusive space, the Clinic provides clients with free legal information, form-filling services, and referrals. During the Clinic, trained law students from the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Law assist clients with their legal transition by explaining all necessary steps as per provincial laws and regulations. Lawyers from McInnes Cooper are on-hand to assist clients with complicating factors.


The Clinic is a long-standing Pro Bono Students Canada ("PBSC") project facilitated by the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Law Chapter. PBSC works in partnership with pro bono lawyers and community organizations to provide free legal support for people and communities facing barriers to justice. As a national movement, PBSC is founded on dignity, equity, and humility. 


The Clinic serves clients from New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia who wish to update their Birth Certificate, Driver's License, Medicare Card, SIN Number, Passport, and/or Newcomer documents​. 

Our clinic dates for the winter 2023-2024 academic semester are now scheduled! Please click the Book Online tab for more information.
