Live Birth Registrations

The Province has now initiated The  Newborn Registration Service which bundles a number of services and allows parents to complete the Statement of Live Birth online and apply online for a birth certificate and social insurance number at the same time.  The service can be found online at Service Ontario. Questions can be directed to the Newborn Registration Service help desk at 807-343-7418


Marriage Licences

The Town of Lakeshore issues marriage licenses. The fee for marriage licenses is $137.00 per licence.  These fees are subject to change annually. A marriage licence is valid for use anywhere in Ontario for a period of three months from the date of issue. If a marriage ceremony has not taken place within this three month period, you will need to reapply for a marriage licence. It is your responsibility to arrange for the marriage ceremony of your choice. The town requires all original documents be provided with the application before the license is started.
