    not much help, even though I live in Canada

    HOWEVER, Canada does have very strict rules on when information on bmds can be released publicly online ............. roughly called the 50/75 or 80/100 rule.

    I am still waiting to even see the reference to a death of someone who died in Manitoba in 1919 ........... I have her death notice sent back to friends in England, and I've discovered she was probably buried in Saskatchewan, but have not so far been able to access any record of her death.

    So ............

    you could check on this site

    http://vitalcertificates.ca/ontario/

    to obtain the certificate

    OR google Vital Statistics Canada

    It might be worth checking on familysearch

    Ontario is one of those Canadian provinces that is very guarded in releasing information.
    The official government site states-
    https://tinyurl.com/kedva9u

    Death certificates in Ontario may be released to any person with a valid reason.
    A Certified Copy of Death Registration is restricted to Next of Kin (Spouse, Common Law Partner, Mother, Father, Daughter, Son, Sister, or Brother). If all Next of Kin are deceased the extended Next of Kin may apply (Grandmother, Grandfather, Aunt, Uncle, First Cousin, Nephew, Niece, or Grandchild).
    I believe the Certified Copy of Death Registration contains cause of death as well as other information.
    Death Certificate – $65.00
    Certified Copy of Death Registration – $75.00 each

    However-

    https://www.orgforms.gov.on.ca/eForms/scr_ServiceStandards.do?eformsId=0#section1

    File-size death certificate: $15
    certified death certificate: $22
    certified death certificate + medical (includes cause of death) is only available through paper application: $22

    Cheers

    A forum is a place where ideas & views can be exchanged
    I read what others write & add my view or idea based on a lifetime of research
    Some people agree with me some disagree that is their prerogative & valued
    If I add a previous posting it is to remind forum users of the post I am replying to
    If I am addressing a particular person I will address them by name
    If not I am making a general comment to no one in particular.

    I think you do have to send some proof and making the application is a bit of a pain. I did one for a friend whose father died in Toronto in 1972 and it hard.

    Sylvia, 1919 Manitoba deaths should be on the government vital stats database: http://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/
