Marriage Licences

How Can I Get A Marriage Licence?

An application form must be completed and signed by both parties in  order to obtain a marriage licence. 

The application form must be submitted along with supporting documents for both parties.  Both parties are encouraged to attend in person, however only one of the parties is required to  submit the application provided they have the proper original documents for the absent party. 

The marriage licence is valid for use anywhere in Ontario for a period of three months from the date of issue.


What Do I Need To Get A Marriage Licence?

Two pieces of identification are required for each party.  Please bring the original birth certificates plus current government issued photo identification.

If divorced in Canada, the original or court certified copy of the certificate of divorce must accompany the application.  A divorce judgement is not acceptable proof of divorce.

If you were divorced outside of Canada, please contact us for further information before applying.


Check List:

  • Completed Application Form
  • Original Birth Certificates for Each Partner
  • Current Government Issued Photo ID (Passport, Drivers Licence, or Canadian Citizenship)  for Each Partner
  • Original Certificate of Divorce or Decree Absolute (if applicable)
  • Application Fee ($135.00 Cash or Debit)
