Marriage Licence Information

The Marriage Licence Application is completed by individuals wishing to purchase a Marriage Licence in order to be married in Ontario. The form will only be accepted by completing the information and taking it, in person, to an Ontario Marriage Licence issuer. You will need to bring your identification, such as a birth certificate (along with any change of name certificates), current passport, Record of Immigrant Landing or Canadian citizenship card, along with photo identification, for both the bride and the groom. Contact your City/Municipality Clerk's Office for the location of the Marriage Licence Issuer nearest you and any further requirements.
