Marriage certificates are issued by the Province, through the Office of the Registrar General (ORG). Following your wedding day, your marriage officiate will send the completed licence to ORG. The ORG requests that you wait 6 – 8 weeks following the date of your wedding to order your official 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.
