Birth Certificates.....

Ok this must be a ludicrious question...but where in God's name would you put a Birth Certificate so as not to lose it??

I have "misplaced" my damned birth certificate and CANNOT find it. I *know* I had it last year when I was traveling to Vancouver--after that - gone....

Does anyone ask for your Birth Cerficate that you can think of?? Why would it be out of my purse? I'm pretty sure I didn't take it out at the border - I had my Drivers License there....Would it have been at the hospital when I broke my ankle? I need to get a passport tomorrow and so I kind of need my B.C. yesterday. Shit! Shit! Shit!

Does anyone know how long it takes to get one reissued? Can I get one tomorrow?

You can get a new one on the spot. The office is upstairs at SNB...the cost is something like $20. but you fill out a form - show some id and voila!! Ne BC in your hot little hand - no muss, no fuss, no waiting:) Happy feeling back! LOL

Actually SNB at the counter now looks after BC's, as of July 1. So the same place you get your motor vehicle registration is the same place you can get your BC, very easy and no fuss no muss, they print it off on the spot for you and yes its like $10 - $20

I got one for Jillian a few months ago and it took minutes.
However, don't wait in the line until you ask at reception where to go. I didn't go to the counter I had to go upstairs to the second floor at SNB and I got it in Sept. It's $20. I lost Jillian's original and there still wasn't any problem getting a new one.

I have a comment - why in the name of bejeezers do they still do that 1960's laminating on it! You can't fit it in the card holders in a wallet in that size. That is why I have lost 2 already cause it doesn't fit!

I, too, have the same problem Nick...I have lost my most recent one ... and I need to get it and my passport before I can see the relations down south, or fly out west to visit Neeta, through the states.

Hey Nick, they actually do not laminate them anymore and the note on the back says if laminated they are null and void
