The government reminds parents to register their child’s birth within 30 days of welcoming them. 

“We’re making it easier than ever for Ontario parents to register their newborns through our refreshed 5-in-1 Newborn Bundle service, letting parents apply for critical documents like their child’s birth certificate and Social Insurance Number in one hassle-free application,” said Ross Romano, Minister of Government and Consumer Services.  

“Young families can now conveniently take care of these essentials online, right from the comfort of their own home, and spend more time focusing on their new addition.” 

The province notes ServiceOntario’s 5-in-1 Newborn Bundle was updated this past fall, making it even easier to register a birth. The refreshed Newborn Bundle allows parents to quickly apply for their child’s birth certificate, Social Insurance Number, Canada Child Benefits (including the Ontario Child Benefit), and Education Savings Referral service all through one application.
