One Stop Health Card & EDL Renewals in Stouffville

June 15, 2012

We have all been there, procrastinating the “renewal” until we are about the “expire.” Why the wait?

Most of us know that renewing a health card, Enhanced Ontario Drivers License and license plate stickers can often be quite a time consuming task and it often requires us to run around to several different locations to renew each government documentation –but not anymore!

Last week I found myself in a crisis, with both a health card and license to renew, as well as license plate stickers to replace, all in one day, I knew I would be running around the world to get it all done.

I booked my appointment in Newmarket, gathered my documents and then proceeded to the Driver and Vehicle License Issuing Offices located at 37 Sandiford Drive in Stouffville.

To my delight and surprise, when I arrived at the drivers and licensing office in Stouffville, I was greeted by a sign on the door that stated that this location is now renewing Ontario Health Cards as well. Brilliant!

Stouffville residents no longer have to make the trek to Newmarket to renew these documents.

Health cards, Enhanced Drivers Licenses and license plate sticks can all be renewed right here in Stouffville!
