Births are recorded by the province through the Office of the Registrar General, a department of the Ministry of Public and Business Service Delivery. For applications and further information, please click on the links below.

In many cases, if you need expedited service, there are options for expedited service through the links above. If you require expedited service and you are not able to do so through those links, or you need any other assistance with a birth certificate concern, please contact my community office for help. 

*If the birth happened outside Ontario and within Canada, please contact the Vital Statistics Office in the province or territory where the birth took place.
