I don't know why but every rule and law in Quebec HAS to be different, then the rest of Canada!
Even Quebec has a separate licence then the rest of Canada, but that is another story!!!
I just called about info on changing my name legally, so I have my husband to be's name. (In Qc, it doesn't happen automatically), I thought that if I changed my name legally and paid all the fees....it would be possible.
When I called the Civil Status place an hour ago, the woman started laughing saying, I hope it isn't for your husbands name!
I thought she was just acting like one of those women who are against it for personal feminine reasons.
In QUEBEC, I CAN CHANGE MY NAME TO ANYTHING BUT MY HUSBANDS NAME!
I can only have his name if I get married somewhere else, and MOVE somewhere else.....I am starting to consider, cause this place is driving me crazy! They just want to believe that they have their own country!
My mother and my grandmothers had their husbands name, and I think it is important when their are kids involved, that it isn't just the mom that has a different name!
This really bothers me!

That seems odd....
So when people get married there, the woman can not take her husbands name?
Sorry, don't know much about Canada, but can you possibly go somewhere esle to have your name changed legally? Or, since he's your husband to be, not legally married yet, maybe you can change your name to his before you get married. He's technically not your husband yet....
