Electronic declaration of birth

The online Electronic Declaration of Birth service allows parents of a new baby born in Québec to declare their child’s birth electronically, rather than with a paper form.

It also allows parents to complete the Application for Simplified Access to Birth-related Government Programs and Services form, facilitating access to over ten government programs and services. It further allows them to apply for a certificate or copy of an act at the lowest rate and to track the progress of their file.

This new service is expected to be gradually introduced to other health care institutions over the coming year. More information will be available on the website in the next weeks.
