We do not have a National Registry of Birth,Marriage,Death in Canada.
Every Province is responsible for these - Some Provinces have sites for BMD - that are now considered Public Record.
and can be searched online. Registrations then available from the Provincial Vital Statistics Dept or the Provincial Archive.All other information that falls outside of the set boundaries are still considered Private - May be available from the Provincial Govt - Vital Statistics dept. There may be restrictions as to who may be able to obtain same.
Ancestry may have some information - but will not be as complete as the full registrations. They do not have access to information held by the Provinces and not made available to the Public.
