Canadian Long From Birth Certificate

So I have all my paperwork together and was going through it, double and triple checking. And I got to my birth certificate. It's a long form birth certificate that I had ordered a few years back because I had needed it for something else and only had the little wallet card. Anyway, so it's the original copy that I received from the vital statistic people a few years ago, lists all my info, my parents info, and the date it was issued to me, etc. The reason I'm freaking out a bit is I'm wondering if this is ok to submit or if they will want a certified copy of my original birth certificate. The one I have is on fancy paper and has watermarks and the whole nine yards, but there is no "raised" seal or stamp on it. It looks like this: http://www.vs.gov.bc.ca/births/certificate_lg.html

Is this what there looking for? I'm sorry for freaking out and if this is a totally stupid question, but I think the pressure has gotten to me!! :wacko: THANKS!

PS - I realize that I spelled long form incorrectly in my topic header but I can't figure out how to edit it!!Oh man, I really have lost it. :D

Wow, wouldn't you really be freaking out if you didn't have a copy at all? That's what I assumed when I saw the name of the topic and I was like "Oh man that sucks!" Mine took almost a month after ordering to receive. :wacko:

Yeah, that was my fiance' who thought his wallet sized birth certificate would suffice until 2 weeks before the interview I was going through the forms with him and said, "No, the government wants the long form birth certificate." Thankfully service Ontario was able to expedite the birth certificate because we asked for it online and we got in 2 days. Anxiety removed!

Wow, I'm shocked Ontario did something that fast. Without expediting, things take FOREVER. I forget how long my old marriage certificate took to come in, something like 2 months. It's ridiculous.

I received my long form birth certificate 4 days after applying online. They have a 15 business day or money back policy for online applications. It was great !! (L):dance:

Eh, those guarantees are never upheld in Nunavut (AKA land of 1-2 month long waits for NON-international mail). :bonk:
