  • Access to Identification for Low Income Manitobans - research completed October 2017

    Posted March 28th 2018

    Government-issued identification (ID) is essential to gain access to a wide range of government entitlements, commercial services and financial systems. Lack of ID on the other hand, represents a critical barrier that prevents low-income Manitobans from accessing these services and benefits, and ultimately results in further marginalization and deepening poverty. While the demand to authenticate our identities has increased, supports to help those who face barriers in accessing ID have not kept pace.

    Through consultation with both community organizations working directly and indirectly on this issue, as well as government agencies responsible for ID provision, this report identifies four opportunities for improvement to reduce the barriers to ID for low-income Manitobans.
