ServiceOntario makes it easy for parents to register their newborn’s birth and name online from the comfort of home. With the 5-in-1 online newborn bundle parents can apply for a birth certificate, a Social Insurance Number and Canada Child Benefits, including the Ontario Child Benefit and Education Savings Referral service. That’s five separate applications that are now combined into one easy-to-use online process.
- Ontario’s Office of the Registrar General compiles the annual lists of baby names from registered births in the province. Ontario keeps all baby name lists online.
- ServiceOntario’s Newborn Bundle was launched in 2007. Since then, more than 1.5 million births of newborns have been registered using this service.
