Civil registration is an important aspect in every person’s life. Every child born has the fundamental right to have their own identity documented through the Certificate of Live Birth and afford them their civil rights. Union between Man and Woman is recognized through Marriage for such union to be recognized as legal and binding and as to enjoy marital rights afforded to individuals. Termination of Life is registered through death to record termination of one’s civil rights.

Data from registration of birth, marriage and death are used by our policy makers in formulating policies and programs related to population, health, security and other policies for the welfare of the general public, hence the importance of civil registration.


The City Civil Registrar’s Office was created through Section 454 of R.A. 7160 which provides mandatory creation of the City Civil Registrar’s Office. The City Civil Registry Office is responsible for the civil registration program of the city pursuant to the Civil Registration Laws.
