After reviewing your application, staff will contact you to make an appointment to obtain your marriage licence.

When you visit the office, you will need to bring the following documentation:

  • 2 pieces of government issued identification for each partner. 1 piece of identification must include your photo. If 1 partner is not attending, you are still required to bring their identification. Examples of government issued identification:
    • government issued birth certificate, including any change of name certificates
    • valid passport
    • record of immigrant landing
    • Canadian Citizenship Card
    • valid driver's licence
    • valid Ontario Photo card
