Legal Matters

  • Registering a Birth in Manitoba
    Every child born in Manitoba must be registered with Vital Statistics Agency within five days of the birth or before the baby leaves the health facility. As of July 1, 2011, Vital Statistics Agency, Canada Revenue Agency and Service Canada introduce the Integrated Birth Registration process to Manitoba. This means that parents can choose to apply for Canada Child Benefits or a Social Insurance Number (SIN) for their baby when they complete the Registration of Birth form.
  • Human Rights & Reasonable Accommodations
    The Human Rights Code is Manitoba's provincial human rights law. It protects individuals and groups in Manitoba from discrimination and is administered by the Manitoba Human Rights Commission.

With a child joining your family, it's very important to make sure you have an up-to-date will. You will need to name a guardian in your will to be responsible for your child's care in the event that both parents die. For more information on wills in Manitoba, follow these links.
