To declare the loss or theft of a birth certificate or a copy of an act of birth, call the Directeur de l'état civil.

The above procedure must be followed before applying for a new birth certificate or a new copy of an act of birth. To prevent identify theft, a note will be added to the Québec register of civil status in order to void the lost or stolen document.
