Marriage Licences

At some time in the three months prior to your wedding date, you will need to buy a marriage licence. Only one member of the couple is required to apply for a marriage licence, but he or she must apply in person, and show primary identification for both parties.  

Examples of primary identification include:

  • Birth certificate
  • IMM/immigration form
  • Permanent resident card
  • Citizenship card

The marriage licence issuer may accept a passport or driver’s licence in some circumstances.

Cost

A marriage licence costs $100, and is nonrefundable. However, if you lose your licence, you can return to the place where you bought it, and ask for a replacement.
