If you fill in and mail the paper version of the Statement of Live Birth, it may take approximately 2 months to register the birth of your baby from the time the Office of the Registrar General receives the paper statement of live birth.

Your baby’s birth certificate will be delivered approximately 15 business days after the birth is registered. If you are moving in the next 2 months, please use your new mailing address.
