You would need to contact a moderator here.

you need to send a private message to MOD team if you would like to request an invoice.

Would taking a screen shot of your account payment history etc work? Then you could just email or print it off.

@Danielap11 As PM is prepaid it may not be considered a utility bill. Utility bills are often used as proof of residence, but a cell phone has no fixed address.

Good luck.

Since Public Mobile is prepaid and there is no credit card or ID check, sometimes having an invoice from Public Mobile will not meet your needs for verification at the bank.  

 

You can get a formal invoice from Public Mobile but you will need to send private message to moderator as described above.  It can take at least one week to generate the invoice.  

 

Include the following information for Public Mobile to create invoice:

First name:

Last name:

Street address:

Suite/Apartment (if applicable):

City:

Province:

Postal Code:

Customer phone number:

Account #

Email address (if possible):

Requested Month / Period:

Amount paid:

Anything you'd get from Public Mobile wouldn't be valid as they never confirmed either your name or address.

 

To open a Canadian bank acount, the Canadian government has set up an official website providing guidance:

https://www.canada.ca/en/financial-consumer-agency/services/banking/opening-bank-account.html

 

If you were born here, and even for peopple without a driver's license, virtually all of us would have a birth cirtificate and social insurance number.

 

Based on government guidelines, those 2 alone should be enough.  When I first opened a bank account long ago, birth certificate and social insurance number is all I used.  To open an account at another institution/company, I also used only those 2 things.
