If you are expecting a new baby in 2023, the Ontario government reminds new parents to register their child's birth within 30 days through the 5-in-1 Newborn Bundle online service.

"As a proud father of five children, I know firsthand how much new parents have on their plate," said Minister of Public and Business Service Delivery Kaleed Rasheed. "With just a single online session, parents can apply for critical documents, like their child's birth certificate and Social Insurance Number, right from the comfort of their home."

The website also allows parents to apply for the Canada Child Benefit, including the Ontario Child Benefit and Education Savings Referral service.
