Any store specific credit cards, utility bills, mortgage/lease documents, etc.  You have all the big ones.  You’ll find other stuff crop up that still has your maiden name on it, and you can just change it as you find them.

SIN Card and you should call the CRA to change your name and “link” you and your DH so that you can do your taxes together. That’s about it for the important stuff.

Also, as abbie017 you will find things as you go and can just change these as you find them. For example a library card, paypal account, Anything online really (facebook, twitter, log-in usernames). What I did is a went thru my wallet and took our every card that had my name on it and changed it. I also had to call the parmacies that I go to and change the name on my prescriptions.
