Access to vital statistics records in P.E.I. is getting easier with a new online tool.

Islanders can now apply online for birth, marriage and death certificates and pay for these records online as well.

“The new vital statistics service will make it easier for Islanders to access the records they need in a timely manner, particularly those who were born or married in the province but do not reside in P.E.I.,” said Health Minister Doug Currie.

Previously, people requesting these records had to apply and pay in person or use regular mail.

People interested in applying to be a marriage commissioner can also make an application and pay online, and licensed marriage commissioners can renew their current licenses using this online service.

Islanders looking to apply online for their records can visit www.gov.pe.ca/vitalstatistics.

    I don;t feel you should have to pay a dime for this information. We pay for it when we are born, married and dead. To access your info is like trying to get out of jail (no wait, that is easier)

    Great idea. But the online form needs some tweaking. I am a recent widow & need a copy of our marriage certificate to attach to another govt. form. I have tried and tried and cannot see that I've done anything wrong. But my application is rejected every time. Very frustrated. Very. The Vital Statistics office is in Montague. It closes at 4:00 p.m. Pretty far from Cornwall to travel for a certificate. The Charlottetown office is open only on Wednesdays.
