Marriage ceremonies in Canada can be either civil or religious. Marriages may be performed by members of the clergy, marriage commissioners, judges, justices of the peace or clerks of the court, depending on the laws of each province and territory regulating marriage solemnization. In 2001, the majority of Canadian marriages (76.4%) were religious, with the remainder (23.6%) being performed by non-clergy.

Marriage Certificates
Every couple marrying in British Columbia receives a marriage certificate by mail once Vital Statistics has registered their marriage. On average, couples receive their marriage certificate three weeks after the wedding takes place.

At any wedding in British Columbia, the couple, two witnesses and the officiant marrying them must sign the Marriage Licence and Registration of Marriage after the ceremony has been performed.

The Marriage Ceremony Introduction We are gathered in this place to witness the formal joining in the legal state of matrimony for this couple, according to the order and the custom prevailing, and under the authority given and provided by the Province of British Columbia. The state of matrimony, as understood by us, is a state ennobled and enriched by a long and honourable tradition of devotion, set in the basis of the law of the land, assuring each participant an equality before the law, and supporting the common rights of each party to the marriage. There is assumed to be a desire for a life-long companionship, and a generous sharing of the help and comfort that a couple ought to have from each other, through whatever circumstances of sickness or health, joy or sorrow, prosperity or adversity, the lives of these parties may experience. Marriage is therefore not to be entered upon thoughtlessly or irresponsibly, but with a due and serious understanding and appreciation of the ends for which it is undertaken, and of the material, intellectual and emotional factors which will govern its fullfillment. It is by its nature a state of giving rather than taking, of offering rather than receiving, for marriage requires the giving of one’s self to support the marriage and the home in which it may flourish. It is into this high and serious state that these two persons desire to unite. Therefore: I charge and require of you both in the presence of these witnesses, that if either of you know of any legal impediment to this marriage, you do now reveal the same. Let ___(party 1) repeat after me: I solemnly declare that I do not know of any lawful impediment why I, ___(party 1), may not be joined in matrimony to ___(party 2). Let ___(party 2) repeat after me: I solemnly declare that I do not know of any lawful impediment why I, ___(party 2), may not be joined in matrimony to ___(party 1). There having been no reason given why this couple may not be married, I ask you to give answer to these questions: Do you ___(party 1) undertake to afford to ___(party 2) the love of your person, the comfort of your companionship, and the patience of your understanding; and to share equally of the necessities of life as they may be earned or enjoyed by you; to respect the dignity of their person, their own inalienable personal rights, and to recognize the right of counsel and consultation upon all matters relating to the present or the future of the household established by this marriage? Answer: I do Do you ___(party 2) undertake to afford to ___(party 1) the love of your person, the comfort of your companionship, and the patience of your understanding; and to share equally of the necessities of life as they may be earned or enjoyed by you; to respect the dignity of their person, their own inalienable personal rights, and to recognize the right of counsel and consultation upon all matters relating to the present or the future of the household established by this marriage? Answer: I do The Marriage Vows Let the couple join their right hands and let ___(party 1) repeat after me: I call on those present to witness that I, ___(party 1) take ___(party 2) to be my lawful wedded wife (or husband) (or spouse) to have and to hold, from this day forward, in whatever circumstance or experience life may hold for us. Let ___(party 2) repeat after me: I call on those present to witness that I, ___(party 2) take ___(party 1) to be my lawful wedded wife (or husband) (or spouse) to have and to hold, from this day forward, in whatever circumstance or experience life may hold for us. The Rings Inasmuch as you have made this declaration of your vows concerning one another, and have set this (these) ring (rings) before me, I ask that now this ring (these rings) be used and regarded as a seal and a confirmation and acceptance of the vows you have made. Let ___(party 1) place the ring on the third finger of ___(party 2)’s left hand, repeating after me: With this ring, as the token and pledge of the vow and covenant of my word, I call upon those persons present to witness that I, ___(party 1) do take thee, ___(party 2) to be my lawful wedded wife (or husband) (or spouse). Let ___(party 2) say after me: In receiving this ring, being the token and pledge of the covenant of your word, I call upon those persons present to witness that I, ___(party 2) do take thee, ___(party 1) to be my lawful wedded husband (or wife) (or spouse).

If a second ring is presented, let one party place the ring on the third finger of the other party’s left hand, repeating after me: With this ring I promise and give to you the truth and faithfulness of my life in marriage. Let the other party reply: In receiving this ring I promise and give to you the truth and faithfulness of my life in marriage.

May you enjoy length of days, fulfillment of hopes, and peace and contentment of mind, as you day by day live and fulfill the terms of this covenant you have made with one another.

What laws must we follow to get married?
In Canada, both the federal government and the provinces have some power over marriage. The federal government has two federal Acts dealing with marriage, specifically the Marriage (Prohibited Degrees) Act and the Marriage for Civil Purposes Act. Both Acts are quite short.
The  Marriage (Prohibited Degrees) Act (see link below) lists persons, such as brothers and sisters, who may not marry because they are too closely related by blood or adoption. The Civil Marriage Act 2005 c 33 (see link below) recognizes marriage between persons of the same sex in that it defines marriage as the union of two people to the exclusion of all others. The Act goes on to protect the rights of religious officials to decline to perform a marriage ceremony that is not in accordance with their religious beliefs. In addition, the Act states specifically that same-sex spouses cannot be deprived of any benefit or subjected to any obligation or punishment by law solely because they have chosen to exercise their freedom to marry.
Except for these federal laws, the provinces make the laws concerning marriage. In Alberta, this law is called the Marriage Act (see link below). This Act deals with a number of things necessary for legal marriages:
  • capacity to marry;
  • the rules that must be followed;
  • the people who may perform marriage; and
  • the penalties for failure to follow the law.

Must we get a licence to marry?
Yes, you must get a marriage licence. You may easily get your licence at any of the numerous registry offices. Look in the yellow pages under Registries for an office near you, or check the links listed below for a list of registry agents in Alberta.
Both you and your spouse-to-be must fill out some forms with personal information and swear that the information given is true. You must also provide identification that proves your age. If you have been married before, you must provide proof of a valid divorce. No medical information or blood tests are required, except under certain rare circumstances. Also, a marriage licence may not be issued or a marriage ceremony held if either spouse-to-be is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The cost for a marriage licence is currently $103.00, and it is valid for three months from the date it is issued.

Can I stay in Canada if I marry a Canadian?


yes, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (landed immigrant) usually has the right to sponsor their husband, wife, same-sex partner or common-law partner. and yes, the sponsorship can usually be started whether the partner or spouse is in Canada already or still in the  home country.

Can you marry a non Canadian in Canada?


Inland Sponsorship in Canada. If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and your spouse or partner is only a temporary resident (in Canada on a visitor visa, study permit, or work permit) you can sponsor your partner or spouse to become a permanent resident through spousal sponsorship.

How long does it take to become a Canadian citizen through marriage?


There isn't a special process for spouses of Canadian citizens. You must meet several requirements to apply for citizenship. You must be physically present in Canada for at least 1,095 days during the five years right before the date you applied.

Marriage Requirements in Canada


Under the Solemnisation of Marriage Act, it is necessary to get a marriage licence or certificate before getting married. Marriage licences are provincial or territorial and it is necessary to apply to the relevant provincial/territorial municipal office or Department of Vital Statistics in order to get a marriage licence. The licence will only be valid in that province/territory, for example, an Ontario marriage licence is only valid in Ontario.
Requirements for Getting Married
Requirements vary according to the province or territory a person wishes to get married in. For example, in Ontario persons wanting to get married (without parental consent) must be at least 18 years old and in British Columbia they must be at least 19 years old. With parental consent (from both parents) it is possible to get married at 16 or 17 years.
In some provinces, written parental consent is required if any party wishing to get married is under 19 years. Under 16 year olds are generally not able to get married, but exceptions are made (in some provinces) if written parental permission is given, the bride is pregnant or is already a mother.
When applying for a marriage license or certificate, the following information is required:
  • The date the couple plan to marry
  • Proof of present marital status: (divorce decree if divorced, death certificate if widowed)
  • Proof of identification, often a birth certificate is required
Getting a Marriage Licence
Application forms for a marriage licence can be obtained from the local municipal offices or the relevant Department of Vital Statistics. It is also possible to download application forms from provincial or territorial Departments of Vital Statistics.
To get a marriage licence, it is usually necessary for both partners to go in person to the relevant municipal office and show any required identification and documents, at which point the couple generally pay a fee for the licence. Marriage licences are usually only valid for a limited time; for example, for three months from the purchase of the licence, although in some areas this may be as little as 30 days. In British Columbia, Newfoundland, Labrador and New Brunswick only one person is required to go to the licencing agent to complete the process of getting a marriage licence.
A marriage licence may not be required where a marriage is to take place in a church, mosque or synagogue. In these cases the couple may get married after a Publication of Banns. This is an announcement of the couple's intent to marry. Check with the local religious official for exact requirements.
Additional requirements
Other requirements exist, depending on which territory/province the marriage is due to take place in. For example in Ontario and Newfoundland, if a divorce has taken place outside the province, additional information and confirmation of the divorce is required, as marriage licences cannot be issued until a divorce is finalised. Immigration documents and details of parents are also sometimes required when applying for a marriage licence.
In the majority of provinces/territories a couple may be able to get married immediately after receiving the marriage licence. However, some provinces require a short waiting period between the application for the licence and getting married. The longest waiting periods are in Nova Scotia (5 days) and Quebec (20 days).
Provincial Departments of Vital Statistic deal with laws regarding the solemnisation of marriage. They are able to provide information about getting a marriage licence and any additional requirements.
For links to the relevant province/territorial Departments of Vital Statistics, see below:

Making the Marriage Official


There are specific requirements in Canada concerning who can authorise a marriage. It is necessary to have an authorised civil official or authorised religious representative to perform and solemnise the marriage. Ceremonies are normally witnessed by at least two people over the age of 16 years.
Religious marriages are performed by religious officials, who are recognised by the relevant provincial/territorial Department of Vital Statistics under the provincial Solemnisation of Marriage Act. Civil ceremonies are performed by an authorised civil official such as a Justice of the Peace, Judge, City Clerk or Marriage Commissioner. Exactly who is authorised to solemnise the marriage varies according to the provincial marriage laws.
Fees also vary and are set by municipal offices.
Registering the Marriage: The Marriage Certificate
Once the marriage ceremony is complete, the couple will be given a Record of Solemnisation of Marriage, sometimes called a Statement of Marriage. This is usually signed by the two parties getting married, the official who carried out the ceremony and the two witnesses present. This is merely a record of the marriage, not a legal document.
The Marriage Certificate must be applied for at the provincial Department of Vital Statistics. However, it is usual for the official who performed the ceremony to help complete the relevant Marriage Registration Form and send it to the relevant Department of Vital Statistics. If the official does not carry out this process, it is possible to apply independently to the relevant Department of Vital Statistics for the Certificate of Marriage, for which there is normally a fee involved in registering the marriage. The Marriage Certificate proves the marriage is official; it is a legal document certifying the marriage.
Change of Name
There is no legal requirement to change surname after getting married. In order to change a name, all ministries and government agencies must be notified. A copy of the marriage certificate is required in order to change name on official documents such as:
  • credit cards
  • driver's license
  • social insurance card
  • bank documents
  • insurance forms

Marriage, Civil Partnerships and Cohabitation in Canada


Getting married in Canada is fairly straightforward. Even though the federal government has overall authority governing marriage and divorce in Canada, the provinces/territories are responsible for establishing laws to regulate and solemnise marriage. Therefore, requirements for marriage vary according to the province/territory in which a person wishes to get married.
As long as provincial requirements are met, anyone can get married in Canada, including same- sex couples. Same-sex marriage is recognised across Canada, with the couple being able to choose to follow either a religious or civil ceremony.
There are no residency requirements to get married in Canada.
Marriage in Canada does not offer permanent residency rights. Canadian immigration services require proof of a relationship through official documents and consider each case individually. Canadian immigration is very careful to what is suspected to be an arranged marriage for immigration purposes. Thus, even a married couple, especially new ones, will have to provide solid evidence as to the reality prior to their relationship. Partners who recently met and who intend to marry in Canada have no chance to obtain permanent residence.
Canadian Citizens planning to be married in a foreign country, should contact the nearest embassy or consulate of the country where the marriage will occur to determine the legal requirements. Canadian government offices abroad can also provide information about laws and regulations in the countries where they are located.
