Getting a Marriage Certificate

Marriage Certificate (After The Ceremony)

A Marriage Certificate is the legal record of a marriage. It lists the date and place of the marriage, and names of the people who were married. You need this document to:

  • Change a last name.
  • show legal proof you are married

Immediately following the ceremony, you will receive a Record of Solemnization of Marriage from the official performing your ceremony.

Before you can get a Marriage Certificate, your marriage needs to be registered. The official who performed the marriage will do this by sending your completed and signed Marriage Licence to Service Ontario.

You must wait 8-10 weeks after the date of your ceremony before you can apply for your Marriage Certificate.
