How to get a Marriage Certificate from Hamilton City Hall

A marriage certificate is the legal record of a marriage. You can either purchase a Short Form Certificate which lists the date and place of the marriage, and names of the people who were married. The Long Form Certificate is an actually copy of the Marriage Licence.

You need this document to:

show legal proof you are married

apply for certain social benefits

settle an estate

change a last name

A Record of Solemnization of Marriage is not the same thing as a marriage certificate.

Before you can get a marriage certificate, a marriage needs to be registered. The official who performed the marriage will do this by sending a complete and signed marriage licence to Service Ontario.

If you were married in Ontario, you can order or get a copy of a marriage certificate online.

If you were married outside of Ontario, check with the Vital Statistics office for the province you were married in.
