Marriage certificates are issued through ServiceOntario, by the Office of the Registrar General (ORG). Following your wedding day, your marriage officiant will send the completed licence to the ORG. The ORG requests that you wait 10 weeks following the date of your wedding to order your certificate.
A marriage certificate is required for a number of legal reasons. Some examples are: a change of name; personal records; pension benefits or insurance.
Application for your marriage certificate can be made either online or by mail.
