@CherryWaves:  Pretty sure I started with the driver’s license, then health card, SIN card, bank cards, credit cards, car insurance (although by an accident I think I forgot this for a little while), (house insurance will stay in whatever name you had when you bought).  Changed everything through work and professional associations.  Mostly I tried to do it all at once by going through my wallet of cards.  Things will come up over the next year here and there so keep those ID cards handy. 

I didn’t actually find the whole name changing thing to be too painful.  Hopefully yours works well too.

What about work things? For my work I need to change my name with HR, for benefits, for accidental death insurance, for email and for business cards. I know my work has a 30 day policy (if you don’t submit the paperwork after 30 days, you cannot change your benefits and death policies until you have a baby/adopt!).
