If you didn't find the birth in Ontario Vital Stats
registrations, I suspect it was never registered.
The child's name would be added to the end of the passenger

The records before 1925 are not indexed.To find a passenger
you will need to know an exact date of
The Archives of Ontario has immigration records from 1867
The National Archives of Canada (NAC) holds immigration
records from 1865 to 1935.
A list of NAC microfilm numbers for passenger lists to
Canada 1865-1922 can be found at
