Your identity is created at birth. As soon as you are born and given a first and last name, your parents started notifying different organizations that you are here. Files start being created: your birth certificate, hospital card, library card, citizenship card, bank accounts, social insurance number, and so on. The list is long, but that’s how your identity is built.
Parenthood, illness, old age, and death are all part of life, but so is fraud, unfortunately.
