To buy birth certificates online, the birth must have been registered online within the last year. You will require the tracking number from your online registration.
You cannot order anyone else's certificates here.
A registry agent service charge of $20.00 per certificate will be added to your order.
There are two kinds of birth certificates you can buy for your newborn:
- A birth certificate with the child and parents’ information
- A birth certificate with only the child’s information
A certified copy of the Registration of Birth cannot be ordered online; see Service Alberta, Family & Life for ordering details.
Birth certificates will be delivered once your newborn’s registration information has been verified.
You are assigned a tracking number when you submit your child's birth for registration.
- Can only be used once
- Expire after one year
Please ensure any birth certificates are purchased within one year of receiving this tracking number.
If a birth has not been registered online, please visit a registry agent to buy a birth certificate. For those purchasing details, see Family and Life Events/Get a birth certificate or birth document.
- There are no refunds for incorrect orders.
