Help Legal name on MSPE

Hi, i am an old graduate. I graduated 12 years back, my legal name has since been changed and I have moved to Canada. I applied to my medical school for my MSPE and have received it, but they have mentioned my legal name as the one which I had when I was graduating and not the one which is with ECFMG.
though I had given proof of change of name to ECFMG, will this MSPE be valid for my ERAS.

If you have submitted a proof of name change to ECFMG then you should not face any problems.

As an extra precaution you can also email the residency programs about the issue.

Generally speaking the MSPE is not of that great importance for IMGs, what really matters is the final medical school transcript.
