CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)-10 has lined up activities to celebrate the 32nd Civil Registration Month 2022 with the theme, “Improving Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Implementation Strategies through Digital Transformation.”
“Ang atong katuyuan nga ang PSA i-deliver ang epektibo nga civil registration sa atong katawhan,” PSA-10 Chief Administrative Officer Virgie Gayla said during the Talakayan sa PIA, January 27 at SM Downtown Premier.
(Our purpose is for PSA to deliver effective civil registration to our people)
The agency’s activities include the motorcade around the city that will be held February 2; conduct of quizzes in PSA-10’s outlet on civil registration to heighten awareness on the significance of the celebration and its impact to the lives of the people;
Conduct of national quiz bee; setting up of a photo booth at PSA-10 office dubbed, “Get every Pinoy and Pinay in the Picture;” holding events for senior citizens and institutions for the ‘adopt-a-daycare’ activity.
PSA-10 will also conduct a coastal cleanup, mass weddings in partnership with the local civil registrars, and mobile registrations to bring government services right on the doorstep of the people.
“Ang una gyud ani nga ga-initiate ang simbahan; nakita nila nga ang ilang mga katawhan wala pa nakasal and then they will coordinate with the local civil registrar. Ang among role, i-invite mi nila to join the activity kay from the local civil registrar, it (marriage certificate) will be forwarded to PSA para tuloy-tuloy na siya,” Gayla added,
(The church initiated it [mass wedding] because they have seen a lot of unmarried couples in their respective communities then they will coordinate with the local civil registrar. The local civil registrar will invite us to join the activity so they will just forward the marriage certificate to us; it will then be easier to get the documents done)
As for the important documents commonly requested from PSA such as birth certificates, certificate of no marriage record (CENOMAR), death certificates and more, Gayla said starting February 2, PSA-10 will no longer accept any walk-in clients in their outlet.
“We are implementing now the online appointment and this is the link: appointment.psa.gov.ph. Sila na’y magpili sa adlaw, depende sa slot (They will be the one to choose the date, depending on the available slot),” she said.
The Civil Registration Month is an annual celebration relevant to the mandate of the PSA to enforce civil registration functions in the country and is conducted pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 682 signed, January 28, 1991 by former President Corazon C. Aquino, declaring February as the Civil Registration Month. (RTP/PIA-10)
