How do I obtain a Marriage Licence Application?

You can purchase a Marriage Licence in Ontario no more than three months prior to your wedding date.

A Marriage Licence can be obtained from the clerk of most cities, townships, towns or villages and is valid anywhere in Ontario – check your municipal blue pages or one can be downloaded from the Ontario Government Website.

One or both of the persons being married must apply in person to the Marriage Licence Issuer to obtain a licence. You will need to bring 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 persons.

There is a set fee for purchasing a Marriage Licence. Contact your municipal office for the current fee. The current fee in the City of Toronto is $140 (HST does not apply).
