Births
The Office of the Registrar General (ORG) is responsible for issuing birth certificates for people born in Ontario.

BIRTH REGISTRATION
Parents of newborns will receive a form called Statement of Live Birth from the hospital. The Statement of Live Birth form is your child's permanent record and must be completed and submitted in order for your child's birth to be registered. Instructions for completing the form are included with it. If you do not receive this form, you can pick one up at the Municipal Office at 35 Alice Street, Brighton or visit: www.serviceontario.ca

It is important that the information is complete, accurate and legible, as this is your child's legal record of birth. The parent(s) must sign the form as indicated. If the father's information is not provided, only the mother is required to sign the form. In the section regarding the father's information, the mother must indicate "Information not provided".

The completed Statement of Live Birth should be forwarded as soon as possible, to the Office of the Registrar General.

When the Registrar General registers the birth, you will receive a Notice of Birth Registration. You may then apply for your child's birth certificate from the Registrar General. For an application form Click Here or you can pick up a form at the Municipal Office at 35 Alice Street, Brighton.
