Applications may also be obtained at the City’s Legislative and Court Services Department on the first floor of City Hall (70 Collier Street). Licences are issued Monday – Friday, 8:30am–4pm. To avoid lineups and streamline the process, applicants are encouraged to book an appointment in advance by calling 705-739-4204


Requirements & Fees

A current passport (which includes a photo) or an original birth certificate PLUS one piece of photo I.D. (driver’s licence, health card, etc.) are required for both applicants. Applicants 16 or 17 years of age require parental consent. There are no medical certificates, residency or citizenship requirements. Licences are issued at a cost of $140 (cash, money order, certified cheque, VISA, MasterCard, debit card). A marriage licence is valid for use anywhere in Ontario for a period of three (3) months from the date of issue. Applicants are encouraged to book an appointment for the issuance of their marriage licence by calling 705-739-4204.


Marriage Ceremony

Photocopies are not acceptable, and all documents will be returned. If a divorce was granted outside of Canada, additional forms must be completed.
