License Fee

$100.00 Cash or Debit only – fee is non-refundable 

A marriage license is valid for 3 months from date of purchase 

 

Process: 

  • Fill out a marriage license application, with signatures of both applicants (applications are also available at the municipal office)
  • Bring the signed and completed application to the municipal office
  • Show 2 pieces of original identification for both applicants. A birth certificate is required, as well as one piece of government-issued photo identification, such as a passport, driver's licence or health card - no photocopies (originals are required)
  • If divorced in Canada, the couple must provide the original or a court-certified copy of the certificate of divorce when purchasing the marriage licence. Photocopies will not be accepted. If divorced outside of Canada, the municipal office will provide you with information required to be completed for authorization from the Office of the Registrar General. A marriage license cannot be issued until the authorization is issued to the applicant and submitted with the marriage application. This process may take up to 4 weeks.

Age Requirements

Applicants must be 18 years of age or over. Applicants who are 16 or 17 years of age must have the consent in writing of both parents. NO person under the age of 16 years may be married. 

 

Marriage Certificate

After the marriage ceremony, the officiate will mail your completed marriage license for registration to the Office of the Registrar General. Once the license has been registered (approx. 12 weeks), you may apply for a marriage certificate online, by mail, or in person via Service Ontario.  Applicable fees charged by the province are set out on the application form.

 

Civil Ceremonies

Civil Ceremonies are now being offered by the Clerk for a fee of $250.  Ceremonies can take place at either the Council Chambers or at an alternate location of your choice (depending on the Clerk's availability).  We pride ourselves in working closely with you to make your wedding special!  Take a look at the "Guidelines for Civil Ceremonies" and for more information, please contact the Clerk's Office at 519-692-5148 or via email: dclermont@dawneuphemia.on.ca
