HOW TO GET YOUR MARRIAGE LICENCE

You require a Marriage License to become legally married. You can pick the license up from any City Hall in Ontario within 90 days of the ceremony. Bring the license to me on the day of the ceremony and I will have you, your spouse, and 2 witnesses complete the paperwork before I register it with the Government.

 

To get a marriage license, you will need to bring 2 pieces of government-issued identification for each person getting married. One piece of identification must include your photo. Examples of government-issued identification (Please check the municipality’s website, as they may vary and some offer the option of submitting your application for the license online, but you still have to go to the office to pick up):

  • government-issued birth certificate, including any change of name certificates

  • valid passport

  • record of immigrant landing

  • Canadian Citizenship Card

  • valid driver’s license

  • valid Ontario Photo Card

  • certificate of Divorce

NOTE: Healthcare Card and SIN Card do not qualify. Also, make sure that you REVIEW the license to ensure everything is correct before you leave the City Hall.

Save time and Download the Marriage License Application form before you go to City Hall. Only one applicant needs to go if you have your partner's original pieces of ID and signatures on the form.

A license costs around $160.00 in Sudbury.
