Quebec issues first X gender drivers’ license

Quebec has finally issued its first drivers’ license with an X gender marker, after years of advocacy and legal action by queer activists—but it could be years before any more are issued. Arwyn Jordan Regimbal received their new drivers’ license last week, making the 23-year-old the first—and only—person to have the X gender marker on their drivers’ license in the entire province. Since 2022, trans and non-binary people in Quebec have been able to have an X rather than M or F on their birth or marriage certificates, but not health-care cards or driver’s licenses. By contrast, every other province in Canada currently issues X gender markers for licenses and other documents like birth certificates.
