Name Changing in Quebec

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

 

Are there any brides out there who have any info regarding name change procedures in QC? As far as I can tell, you'd have to have a legal name change done? Is this right? Is anyone else in the process of doing this?

Hi Kbodchill,

 

I too have looked into this and as far as I understand as long as your primary residence is in Quebec there is no legal way to change you surname to that of your spouse. This is because you need to give a reason to change you name, and marriage is not accepted. Legally we're stuck with our own names. But I plan to assume that of my husband once wed. I'll introduce my self as Mrs. C and at work I'll have my email and that stuff changed, but all my IDs will have my maiden name.

 

Do let me know if you find a way around it though.

Hi Jessica,

 

We actually got legally married last Monday and our notary did inform me that I would not be able to change my name. Even if you file a request, it will be denied. You can use his name but any official document will have your name maiden name on it(medical card, driver's license, passport) It's very disappointing because I would love to change my name but looks like we're stuck.  If you find a loophole, let me know.

Hi Vero,

 

I notice that you have your location as Ottawa. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that it was the laws of your province that were applicable regardless of where you got married. If you got married in Qc but have your IDs in On then you can have them changed. It's just the Quebec provincial stuff you can't get changed. Because I looked into the reverse situation, getting legally married in Ontario, but I was told that the Quebec laws on name change would still apply as that is where I live.

Hi Jessica and Vero,

 

I'm totally in the same boat....! We're actually flying home to Manitoba to get married with our families, but you're right, so long as we live here, and QC has issued all of our official ID documents (driver's licence, Health insurance card) we'll have to retain our maiden names. Boo! While I love living on this QC side (rather than Ontario) this is one law that I am not a fan of.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
