The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) leads this year’s Civil Registration Month (CRM) celebration with the theme “#napapanahongCRVS”, in consonance with the global advocacy of getting everyone registered and of promoting awareness on the importance of civil registration in the lives of every Filipino.

The 2018 CRM celebration in the region will kick-off with a caravan on 02 February 2018. This will be participated in by PSA Regional Statistical Service Office 8 (RSSO 8), PSA - Provincial Statistical Offices (PSOs), and Local Civil Registry personnel in the region. This will be followed by a Program hosted by LGU-Alangalang at Alangalang Gymnasium.

PSA lined up activities to highlight the month-long celebration such as symposia, data dissemination seminars, trainings, exhibits, slogan and poster making contests, information and education campaign like media interviews, and hanging of CRM streamers.

Provincial Civil Registration Quiz among secondary schools will be conducted by the respective PSOs in preparation for the Regional Civil Registration Quiz which will be held on 27 February 2018 in Catbalogan City.

Other activities related to the CRM celebration initiated by the different Local Civil Registry Offices (LCROs) in coordination with PSA are mass weddings, mobile registrations and free issuance of certifications. For more details on these activities, please contact or visit the respective LCROs.
