ChantelleC90:  Pretty sure you start with your drivers license and go from there. I’m pretty sure that is the only place that will require you to bring your marriage certificate. That and foryour SIN card. After that, those updated ID’s will serve as your ID to change everything else. 

Atleast that is what every other NL bride has told me. I’ll be doing mine in July

ya once you request your marriage certificate online and order it you bring it to change your drivers license, health card, sin card, and I needed it for my passport

As others have said, definitely start with driver’s liscence and SIN. 

Also, I just wanted to say hi to a fellow Newfoundlander. 🙂

I started with my drivers license (and car registration at the same time) and then just went through everything in my wallet. Don’t forget things like car insurance, mortgage, house insurance, etc. I changed my name at the bank thinking it would change everything but I had to ask for them to change it on my Visa and mortgage.
