  • Proof of Identity/Age (one of: birth certificate, passport, immigration papers, or legal adoption papers) if you are new to HRCE;
  • Proof of home address (a recently dated official government or utility document with your current address that includes your name and date, such as water bill, power bill, internet bill, home fuel bill, a tax receipt, property assessment or a mortgage contract); and
  • Nova Scotia Health Card or Canadian Province Health Card or, for Non-Citizens while in Canada, proof of Medical Insurance Information.
