Ontario Making it Easier to Renew Documents


Today, Minister Romano announced our government is making it easier for Ontarians to renew their important documents, including licence plate stickers, driver’s licences and health cards, by introducing the option for people to receive digital reminders.

Ontarians can now choose to receive emails, texts or voicemails  up to 60 days in advance of their renewal date. Once they receive their digital reminder, customers can renew their documents through ServiceOntario.ca, where over 40 transactions are available online 24/7.
