I live in Toronto and was married recently (Jan 18, 2012) at the Majestic Colonial resort in Punta Cana.
We have received our marriage certifcate and accompaning documents in Spanish. I've had these documents translated to English by an accredited translator. I want to change my last name to my married name on all my documents. The first document I wanted to change was my drivers license. I was told by an agent at the Service Canada office that I had to complete an 'election to change surname' form. Submitting this form means that my name on birth certificate would change to my married name. This does not make sense to me. Is anyone having this trouble? Is there another way to change my name on my driver's license?
