Vital Statistics Live Birth Data
The Office of the Registrar General (ORG) obtains information about all live births within 30 days of birth in Ontario, as per the Vital Statistics Act (1990). A birth is registered when the ORG has received the Notice of Live Birth or Stillbirth (completed by the birth attendant within two business days), and the Statement of Live Birth (completed by the parent within 30 days.)
