Please be advised that staff responsible for the issuance of marriage licences cannot provide advice regarding the number of guests that are able to attend at your planned wedding. For information regarding social distancing guidelines please consult the Provincial Emergency Order.

Given the current circumstances and changes to administrative practices as a result of COVID-19, appointments may take up to one hour and the following requirements must be met in order for a licence to be issued.

  • One or both of the applicants must attend in person in order to get a Marriage Licence. 
  • Complete, print and sign the online Marriage Licence Application Form.  
  • Bring the completed Marriage Licence Application Form, signed by both applicants, and the required documents with you to your appointment.

If you do not attend your appointment with the required information/documents a marriage licence will not be issued to you.

Marriage Certificates

Couples must wait about 10 weeks after the marriage ceremony to request the marriage certificate from the Province of Ontario. The province does not send the certificate automatically. This is the legal record of the marriage. The couple must initiate the request for a marriage certificate by visiting the Service Ontario website.
