Change of sex on birth registration
The steps you need to take to change the sex on your birth registration. Recent amendments to Yukon’s Vital Statistics Act removed the requirement for sex reassignment surgery before a person can change the sex on their birth registration.
Due to the high volume of requests that we are currently receiving.
We thank you for your patience.

The fee to obtain a new birth certificate is $10.
