What we do

The Vital Statistics Agency is responsible for administering and enforcing The Vital Statistics Act, The Marriage Act, The Change of Name Act and processing disinterments under The Public Health Act.

The Agency registers vital events (birth, death, marriage, stillbirth and change of name) in Manitoba and provides documents as proof of those events. Legislation protecting privacy governs who can access records held by the Agency.

Our database contains information from vital event records from 1882 to present for the Province of Manitoba. All of our records are held in perpetuity for all Manitoba events.

Hours of Operation

The Vital Statistics Agency is open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. (Central Time).

The hours of operation are subject to any government-wide office closures (e.g. statutory holidays).
