How to get a Marriage License in Ontario


Getting your marriage license in Ontario is quite simple. It takes roughly 15 to 45 minutes and costs $120 to $160 dollars. Read all the steps below!

Step #1. Timing


You can only apply for your marriage license within 90 days of your wedding day due to expiration. I recommend getting your license 1 to 2 months before the wedding day.

Step #2. Complete Application Form

Thank you Alex!

Alex officiated our wedding on New Years Eve. Leading up to the wedding he was so accommodating by coming to our house for our meetings. He helped make our ceremony personal by including our 5 year old son. | Toronto – One King West Hotel & Residence

Step #3. Prepare Photo I.D and completed Marriage License Application Form


Step #3. Prepare all Files and Photo I.D’s

Prepare 2 pieces of photo I.D’s  for your self and 2 pieces of photo I.D for your fiance. Aslong as you have the I.D’s and the signed marriage license application form either one of you can go in. Both persons do not have to go into the city hall together to obtain the license.

It is recommended that both persons go into the CityHall if one was divorced

( they will need to obtain a divorce certificate from the issuing municipality ) and if one if not a Canadian Citizen. 

If you do not have a drivers license, please contact the City hall where you plan to go to and ask what type of Photo Identification they will accept.

Best Officiant!

Alex was absolutely amazing. Words cannot express how much we loved having him officiate our special day. He was always available to help us and really personalize the ceremony. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about him and how smoothly the ceremony went. Even prior to the wedding, he was available to answer any questions, responding quickly and providing his feedback. We just felt so comfortable and couldn’t ask for anyone else.
