Birth Certificate Questions

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The birth certificate must contain the:

  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Names of both parents
  • Indication by the appropriate authority that it is an extract from the official records

Names of both parents; my birth certificate is from Ontario, but its the size of a business card. I don't believe it has my parents names on it. Do I need a different birth certificate?

Short answer is yes, you need the full-size one from Vital Statistics or whatever it's called in Ontario.


I'm trying to be patient, but you know that's not my default position.

Guarantor is easy now. All that they need to be is a current valid passport holder or expired for no more than a year. Plus known you for two years No longer a pastor, doctor, judge, etc

Actually, it asks for the guarantor to be a bunch of different roles. Unfortunately, I clicked the wrong button, saying that I didn't have permission to use the guarantor, and now its asking me to send in a letter.

I need to call, I think to cancel/change the request.

Yeah, passports do not equal long form birth certificates. He's applying for a birth certificate, long form. Not a passport.

My fiance is using his accountant, he could also use his family doctor.

"

What is a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who certifies that the information you provided on the birth certificate application is complete and accurate.

ServiceOntario may contact your guarantor by phone to verify the information you provided on your application.

A guarantor must be a Canadian citizen who has known the applicant for at least 2 years and is currently serving as one of the following:

  • judge, justice of the peace, municipal police officer, provincial police officer or officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, First Nations police officer and/or constables
  • mayor
  • member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
  • minister of religion authorized under provincial law to perform marriages
  • municipal clerk or treasurer who is a member of the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario
  • notary public
  • principal or vice-principal of a primary or secondary school
  • senior administrator or professor in a university of a senior administrator in a community college or in a CEGEP in Quebec, or
  • signing officer of a bank

Your guarantor can also be a Canadian citizen who has known the applicant for at least two years and is a practicing member in good standing of a provincial regulatory body established by law to govern one of the following professions:

  • chiropractor, dentist, midwife, nurse, optometrist, pharmacist, physician, or surgeon, psychologist or veterinarian
  • lawyer
  • professional accountant
  • professional engineer
  • social worker or social service worker, or
  • teacher in a primary or secondary school

The list above is not an endorsement by the Office of the Registrar General of professional status or recognition of qualifications.

A family member can be your guarantor if that person is a Canadian citizen, has known you for at least 2 years and is currently serving as one of the above noted occupations.

For more information contact ServiceOntario toll free: 1-800-461-2156 or in the GTA: 416-325-8305.

Gawd - this guarantor ####### (this was that super bad word cr@p) so ancient, always hated it. They need to 'modern that up'

All this to get your own birth cert where you could provide other valid forms of government id which would do the trick.
