Before applying, find out the type and format of the document required by contacting the organization to which you must submit it.
In Northwest Territories, only a Long Form Death Certificate is available. It contains the following information: full name of the deceased, date of death, place of death, gender, age, marital status, name of spouse, registration number and registration date.
Death Certificates are issued using the information from the original Registration of Death. If a record cannot be found, a search for a three-year period is carried out automatically and the applicant will be notified.
Given that you have correctly filled out all sections on the application, you will receive your marriage certificate(s) within approximately 10-20 business days (includes mailing time).
Please Note: Fees listed above are inclusive of taxes and shipping costs. If no record of the death is found by Northwest Territories Vital Statistics, fees will be applied to the search cost and will not be refunded.
If you have not received your Death Certificate within the expected timeframe, you may contact the Northwest Territories Vital Statistics Agency to check the status of your application.
