Anyone who has lost a death certificate or copy of an act of death, or had it stolen.
The applicant must be mentioned on the act of death.
To declare the loss or theft of a death certificate or copy of an act of death, telephone the Directeur de l'état civil.
This procedure must be followed before you apply for a new death certificate or a new copy of an act of death. A note will be added to the Québec register of civil status to invalidate the lost or stolen document, as a prevention measure against identify theft.
