Processing time:

For applications sent to us electronically, processing time is 6 to 8 weeks (shipping time is not included). Rush issuance service may be available.

Selecting rush issuance service expedites processing of an application for a document. It does not expedite registration of a vital event.

Rush issuance service is not available until documents for a vital event have been filed in full, and registration has been completed without errors.

Although a payment may be processed immediately, regular issuance service or rush issuance service (as selected by the applicant), will proceed after a vital event is registered correctly and in full.

Important: Every person who submits an application for a certificate and thereby requests that a service be performed by the Government of Manitoba Vital Statistics Agency must pay the required fee. Therefore, applicants who cancel their application or who are refused a certificate are not eligible for a refund.
