We registered ours without one, though that was over a year ago and that may have since changed. I am sure there was a thread about this very thing a while ago...I can't remember for the life of me who started it though...lol

Hope your settling in okay?

agree with wbexpat. I think passport/ bank card/ SIN card suffices as ID?

I registered my car while on a visitor visa (under hubby's work permit), passport and bank card. No SIN, no PR.

i do recall them having a shufty at my WP though. perhaps it was simple curiosity.
