Declaration of Birth
You must declare the birth of your child to the Directeur de l’état civil within 30 days following the delivery. You can use the Electronic Declaration of Birth online service or complete the paper form provided by the hospital or birthing centre staff.
Simplified access to programs and services
By completing the Application for Simplified Access to Birth-Related Government Programs and Services, you can have easy access to several provincial and federal government programs and services.
The application is included with the paper declaration of birth. It is also integrated in the online service. You don’t have to provide a birth certificate to the government departments and agencies concerned.
