Death Certificates From Canadian Provinces and Territories
A Canadian death certificate is an official vital record issued by a government authority that provides legal proof of a death. A death certificate contains the individual’s full name, gender, date of death, place of death, place of birth, resident province, state or country, registration number, and date of registration. This document is required to settle an estate and to qualify for some government benefits and programs.
