Maeve posted a topic in CanadaI've just learned that Quebec birth certificates that were issued before 1994 are no longer considered valid, and if you have to deal with anything in Canada, it could be come a major issue. I'm now having to jump through all kinds of hoops to get one while my husband is deployed, and I *really* don't want any of y'all to have to deal with this hassle! If you can get onto l'etat civil's online system, it's quick and easy to order one, but they *won't* allow anyone on except the actual person - believe me, I tried! Thankfully, the mother or father who is on the birth certificate can request a copy, regardless of their child's age. They also don't need to provide any ID of the child, just their own, so my in-laws are able to take care of this for me. Here is the link to l'etat civil: http://www.etatcivil.gouv.qc.ca/en/default.html Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!
