Families can now register births of newborns online beginning Aug. 1.
British Columbia parents will be able to register the birth of their newborn child online, with the launch of a new birth registration system.
Registration creates a permanent legal record of a birth and every B.C.-born baby’s birth must be registered with the Vital Statistics Agency.
No fee is charged for registrations received within 30 days of a child’s birth. For more information on the new registration process or to register the birth of a newborn, visit www.vs.gov.bc.ca
