Ontario Eliminating Birth Certificate Fee for Vulnerable Ontarians

Minister Romano announced the permanent elimination of the $35 fee for birth certificates for approximately 40,000 vulnerable Ontarians.

This $1.4 million in financial relief will directly remove barriers to accessing essential public services such as housing, health care, food, and social assistance and resolves other major impediments such as the lack of a mailing address and an acceptable guarantor, with participating organizations filling this need.
