​​Order a Death Certificate

​​A death certificate is legal proof of death.  It is needed to settle an estate, to receive entitlement for benefits i.e. pension and life insurance, and for land titles.

Once a death has been registered (see Registering a Death), a death certificate can be processed.  See below for information on how to apply for a death certificate.

If the death is already registered, death certificates are usually processed within six to eight weeks of eHealth receiving your application.  This does not include mailing time.

If the death has not yet been registered, additional time will be required before a death certificate can be processed.
