Birth and Death

Birth certificates

If your baby was born in Ontario, you will need to register your baby’s birth to get a birth certificate. You can register the birth and apply for a birth certificate at the same time through the Newborn Registration Service available on the ServiceOntario website.

Death certificates

For a death that occurred in Ontario, you can apply online for a death certificate through the ServiceOntario website. This website will allow you to complete the death certificate application, and then you have the option of submitting it online or printing a hard copy for mailing. You can also pick up a hard copy application in person from the Clerk's department at Town Hall (1225 Trafalgar Road) and mail it to:

Province of Ontario
Office of the Registrar General
P.O. Box 4600, 189 Red River Road
Thunder Bay, ON
