Death Registrations

The Vital Statistics Act provides that a death should be registered immediately.  No funeral service or burial can take place unless a burial permit is issued.  A permit cannot be issued unless the death has first been registered.

For deaths that occur in Ontario, the funeral director or person responsible for completing the death information brings the documents to the office of the Township Clerk. The Clerk records the information, issues a burial permit and forwards the documents to the Office of the Registrar General. The Township of Minden Hills is authorized to register the death, upon receipt and matching of the Statement of Death, and the Medical Certificate of Death.
