Marriage, Birth & Death Certificates

Vital Statistics services offered at Taradale Registry include ordering birth, marriage or death certificates. One piece of ID is required (e.g. drivers licence, passport, birth certificate, permanent residence card or citizenship card) and must be presented in the office.

The link under Resources in the left column contains all the information regarding Vital Statistics services, including who is eligible to order these certificates. The last page should be printed and filled out prior to coming into Taradale Registry.

There are two options for receiving the above certificates.

  • mailed directly to your home
  • pay a $20 delivery fee and pick your certificate up at the Registry

If there are no issues with your certificate, the government will mail them out using regular service with Canada Post, and you should receive it in 1 - 2 weeks. The delivery fee to pick them up at the office saves you about two business days.

If there are any ammendments required with your certificate, please expect to wait 3 - 4 months. The only way to speed up this process is to provide documentation that a rush is required (ie plane ticket or itinerary).
