Vital Statistics Services

Vital Statistics records major life events of people such as Births, Marriages, Changes of Name and Deaths. Certificates are issued -- including Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates and Death Certificates -- to document these events.

Marriage Licenses are also a function of Vital Statistics, as is the appointment of Marriage Commissioners.

Vital Statistics records all births in the Province and annually they issue a list of the most popular baby names. Vital Statistics information is confidential, and therefore requests for certificates or other information is subject to eligibility requirements.

For a current list of Marriage Commissioners, please contact us at 403.567.9301 and we can fax you a current one OR e-mail us here to request a current listing. For Vital Statistics forms applicable in other provinces please visit our Forms page.
