How do I check the status of everything I’ve applied for on behalf of my baby?

There are different ways to check the status of a birth certificate, Social Insurance Number and Canada Child Benefits, including the Ontario Child Benefit.

You can check the status of your child’s birth certificate request online as long as you applied using one of the online services.

For the Social Insurance Number, contact Service Canada’s Employment Information Telephone Information Service toll-free at 1-800-206-7218 (Option 3) or online at Service Canada.

For the Canada Child Benefits, including the Ontario Child Benefit, contact the Canada Revenue Agency online or call toll-free at 1-800-387-1193.
