Resolution number: 
3
May 2008
Whereas: 
  1. Children’s entitlement to education, protective services, and other supports is determined by age;
  2. Dates of birth on CIC issued documentation are frequently erroneous;
  3. The process for changing such information is cumbersome, onerous, and lengthy, taking time that child do not have;
  4. There are few security implications for altering birth dates for minors;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR request CIC to review the process for changing data on ID documents, with a view to making the process much faster and less difficult for children.
