Re-Enlisting, Documents needed again?
« on: April 23, 2017, 20:47:42 »
I've searched the forums for everything containing the words "birth certificate" and couldn't find anything matching my question so I'm posting it up to see if anyone knows. As a returning member, do I still need to provide my birth certificate? It got lost on the move back to Ontario after I got out and I can't find it for the life of me. I have a 10 year passport that is valid but I don't want my application to get delayed due to not having a Birth Cert.

It's like 35 bucks for another birth certificate, and I've had them show up in only a few weeks. You order it online, at least in Ontario.

Yes you will still need to provide your Birth Certificate to enroll even that you have prior service.
The Birth Certificate is a mandatory piece of enrolment identification.

I had a damaged birth certificate a few years ago and needed a replacement ricky tick.  Paid $60 (Rush shipping) and had it in less than 48 hours.
