Getting Your Marriage License

Getting your marriage license is probably one of the most important items to do.  Without the marriage license, you're not actually married.  It's super simple to get though.  Just visit your City Hall and do the following:

  • 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:

    • 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

  • pay a fee (fees vary and depend on the municipality)

Marriage Licenses are good for 90 days.  So you have a little bit of time to before the big day.

You can download the form ahead of time and fill it out.
