Why do I need to register my child?

Every child born in Ontario must be registered with Ontario's Office of the Registrar General. This allows documents such as birth certificates and Social Insurance Number cards to be produced.

What do I need to know before I begin?

  • If both parents are going to be named on the child's birth registration then both parents must be present at the computer to complete and certify (sign or confirm online) this form.
  • Either parent named on the child's birth registration is eligible to apply online for the child's birth certificate and Social Insurance Number. Only the mother is eligible to apply for Canada Child Benefits online. The eligible person(s) must be present at the computer in order to apply for any of these services.
  • Your child must be under one year of age. If your child is one year or older, contact the Office of the Registrar General.
  • Review our Newborn Registration checklist for information you will need to know.
