Service Canada Birth Certificate
Your birth certificate has specific information about you. It shows where you were born, when you were born, your nationality, weight at birth, and even the time of your birth. It shows your legal name at birth, and in many cases, the names of your mother and father, and helps show lineage. Many birth records also have another identification number, not your national insurance number assigned to them.
A birth certificate is a vital document that gives information about an individual. The certificate can refer to the original document given upon birth or a certified copy of the original. There are two ways in which you can get a birth certificate: as a child and as an adult.
