The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. After months of waiting, planning, and anticipation, you will finally be ready to meet the newest and littlest member of your family. From preparing the nursey with just the right paint colours, furniture, and bedding, to ensuring you have the right car seat, stroller, and general baby supplies, there is a lot of intense preparation before baby arrives. Afterward, you will still have a number of things to cross off on your new baby checklist, including the registration of your child’s birth with the Government of Alberta. Once the birth is registered with the Government of Alberta, you will be able to order the necessary documents including a birth certificate through Calgary’s expert team at Registry @ South Trail Crossing. 


To order a birth certificate, you will first need to confirm you are eligible to apply. Once you have met the requirements, stop by our convenient Calgary location where our helpful and knowledgeable staff can provide the right form to obtain the birth certificate or documents you require from the Government of Alberta. You will need at least one piece of personal identification in the form of a driver’s license, or government-issued identification card. We can then assist you in applying for a:

  • Birth certificate with personal information only​

  • Birth certificate with personal information and parentage

  • Certified photocopy of a Registration of Birth

You can order your own birth certificate in Calgary or anywhere across Alberta or that of a next of kin even if the person is no more as long as you meet the criteria laid down by the government. There are specific application formats for different types of birth certificate ordering from within as well as from outside Alberta. The provincial government charges a fee for issuing a birth certificate and it generally takes 7-10 business days to pick it up at our office. It may take longer if the issuing authorities find inaccuracies in the information you provided. However, feel free to contact us in case you face difficulties in completing your application.

To make your service with us quicker and even more efficient, you can download and print the form you need via the convenient Service Alberta website. Complete the form before you pay us a visit, and we will be able to process your application that much faster. To learn more about our services, give us a call or stop by our location.


What’s the significance of the birth certificate of a person who is no more? It’s a sensitive question but needs an answer because there are chances that the identity of a deceased person can get stolen, or the deceased person leaves his/her property in your care as the executor or administrator. So, if you are the next of kin of a person who is no more, you must provide the proof of death along with a proof of your relationship with the deceased person while ordering his/her birth certificate.


In order to apply for a birth certificate in Calgary in such instances, you need to provide proof of death along with a copy of the will of the deceased with your name mentioned in it as the personal representative.
