Marriage Licences

Couples planning to marry in Ontario can get their marriage licence through the City of Waterloo.

A licence is valid anywhere in Ontario for 90 days from the date of issue. There is no waiting period between the date your licence is issued and your date of marriage.


Complete your marriage licence application online or by using a hard-copy form.

The form must be completed and signed by both parties, then submitted in person to the City Clerk’s office at City Hall, along with supporting identification and documents for both parties.

Both parties are encouraged to attend in person. If only one person can attend, they must have the proper documents for the absent party. The licence will be issued within 10 to 15 minutes if everything is in order.

Online applications

The online application is easy to use:

Enter the necessary information

Press save

Record the four-digit number

Print the application immediately

Both applicants must sign and date the application

Take the completed application along with the four-digit number to the City Clerk’s office, on the first floor of City Hall.

Supporting documents

Identification must be provided for both individuals. Expired or photocopied identification is not acceptable. Any two of the following pieces of identification are accepted, provided at least one contains a current photo and signature:

Birth certificate, Valid passport, alid driver’s licence, , Canadian citizenship card, Canadian government refugee travel document, United States green card, Native status card, Permanent residency card or record of immigrant landing, , Ontario photo card, Citizenship card from any country

Ontario health cards and social insurance number (SIN) cards are not acceptable forms of identification to obtain a marriage licence.


The fee for a marriage licence is $149. We accept cash or debit.



If a previous marriage was dissolved or annulled in Canada, the original or court certified copy (not photocopies) of the decree absolute or certificate of divorce must be presented with the completed application. A decree nisi, divorce order or divorce judgment is not acceptable proof of divorce.

If a divorce was granted outside Canada, additional documentation must be provided and it may take four weeks or longer to obtain a marriage licence. The necessary forms may be obtained from the City Clerk’s office.

People who are 16 or 17 years old

People who are 16 or 17 years old must have parental consent to marry. Please contact us for more information and the consent form.
