Registering the birth

This information will also be available in the blue or green folder that you will be given in the hospital.

Your baby needs to be registered within 30 days after delivery.
 
Using Service Ontario’s website, you can register your baby’s birth, apply for a birth certificate, apply for the Canada Child Tax Credit, and apply for baby’s Social Insurance Number in one easy step. Click here to access Service Ontario's website.
 
If you prefer to complete the paper forms, please speak to your nurse, who can provide you with these forms.
