Birth certificate question

So for Manitoba, I can’t figure out which birth certificate is needed. Attached is a copy of the three choices 

1) birth certificate without parents names

2) birth certificates with parents names

3) copy of registration (and states this is not a birth certificate). 
 

Attached is also what the Dept is asking for on their website. 
Which do I choose? 
I was thinking the copy of registration, but then when it says “this is not a birth certificate” throws me off.

You need the one WITH parents' names. This is the long-form birth certificate (though calling it "large" is interesting).

 

The one without names is the short-form certificate.

The one I have has our names on it. It’s not  a long form , maybe 4x6?

It is a bit bigger than the Ontario standard birth certificate I have from when I was born. 

I figured it would have been an entire 8x10

Then you need your birth registration from Ontario (wherever you were born).  Normally you get the large certificate (or long) with both parents name, but Ontario is a bit different.

Hello fellow Manitobans!!!

 

OP: you definitely need the long form of your birth certificate. USCIS needs to verify your parent's names, as you provide them in your paperwork. :)

Good luck!
