There are two different styles of Canadian Death Certificates such as the certificate size or the long form certified copy of the registration of death. Both come as certified true originals from the provincial Vital Statistics department. It's important to remember that the one you got from the Funeral Director or Funeral Home is not an official death certificate. The provincial statistics department of the province where the death took place issues the official death certificate. If you need to order a Death Certificate you can find links on our resources page on how to do it.
