Becoming a parent.

Certificate, copy of an act or attestation of birth

Directeur de l'état civil

Birth in Québec
Before you apply for a birth certificate or any other civil status document in the name of your child, you must wait to receive a notice from the Directeur de l'état civil confirming that your child's birth has been registered in the Québec register of civil status.  
 
Adoption
If you adopt a child from abroad without an adoption judgment having been rendered in Québec, you must wait to receive a notice from the Directeur de l'état civil confirming that your child is registered in the Québec register of civil status before you can apply for civil status documents in your child’s name.
 
In all other cases, you must wait 30 days following the date of the adoption judgment before you can apply for a birth certificate or any other civil status document in your child’s name.
 
Birth outside Québec
If your child was born outside Québec and you are a resident of Québec, you may request that the child’s act of birth issued outside Québec be inserted in Québec’s register of civil status. Once the act has been inserted in the register, you may request civil status documents in the name of your child from the Directeur de l’état civil.
