How do you prove your age?

1705. How do you prove your age?

The following types of evidence, established or recorded before your fifth birthday, are acceptable in proving your age:

  1. A public record of your birth; or

  2. A religious record of your age that shows your date of birth.

If such a document is unavailable, you must submit another document or documents that may serve as the basis for a determination of your date of birth. The evidence must be confirmed by other evidence or by information contained in our records.
