Canada runs strict rules on releasing BMD to family search sites. The next census should have your grandmothers name on it, 2021.

I believe as a direct relative you can request details of Laura May Workman. Not sure where you apply to. You could try here:




I also found this:

In Ontario, civil registration dates from July 1, 1869. The Archives of Ontario holds records of births from 1869 to 1914, marriages from 1869 to 1929, and deaths from 1869 to 1939. Incomplete marriage registers prior to 1869 are also available.
Due to the large demand, staff members at that office are unable to undertake genealogical searches in these vital records. However, microfilm copies of the nominal indexes and the original registrations are available through inter-institutional loan from the Archives of Ontario and through your local Family History LibraryTM. Should you prefer to hire someone to search through those records on your behalf, the Archives of Ontario can provide a list of researchers.
For births after 1914, marriages after 1929, and deaths after 1939, requests should be addressed to:
Registrar General [www.orgforms.gov.on.ca/eForms/start.do?lang=en]
PO Box 4600
Thunder Bay, ON
