Parents should register their child’s birth within 30 days of welcoming their newborns.

“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.”

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.

Quick Facts

  • ServiceOntario’s 5-in-1 Newborn Bundle was the first of its kind in Canada when it launched in 2007. More than 1.6 million births have been registered in Ontario using the service.
  • Recent upgrades to the Newborn Bundle include providing customers with a more user-friendly experience, whether from a desktop computer or mobile device.
  • The government is making it easier for Ontarians to complete essential transactions online, with over 40 services available through ServiceOntario 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
