I'm sorry to ask a question in another person's thread but if possible any answer would help: When they ask for MY canadian birth certificate do they want the long form or is the small version I have sufficient? Starting to get things together... call me an over-preparer lol

Okay so I am on the ontario website to order it and these are the two options...

 

Long form birth certificate

You may be asked by a government agency or person to submit a long form birth certificate.

The term "long form" may refer to a birth certificate with parental information or a certified copy of birth registration.

These are two separate products, used for different purposes, with different information. Always check with the government agency or person requesting the document to confirm what information they need before ordering a birth certificate.

 

Which one is the correct one?

 

Thanks in advance!!!

Do the certified copy.  It's $10 more but there's no question it will pass (others have reported ordering this one).

You just need a certified copy aka copy issued by original issuer of your birth certificate with parental names. The certified copy of birth registration us going overboard but obviously still accepted.  Ontario is one of the few provinces that offer this.  Most just do long and short form.  Aka with or without parental names.
