The fee for a marriage licence is $125.00.
You must be at least 18 years old to be married in Ontario by license or under the authority of the publication of banns without authorization or parental consent. If you are 16 or 17 years old you may marry if you have the consent in writing of both parents. Other restrictions may apply.
Only one applicant is required to submit the Marriage Application provided that the proper documentation is presented for both applicants, including: A current passport (which includes a photo) or an original birth certificate PLUS one piece of photo I.D., i.e. driver's licence, etc., for both applicants. We do encourage both applicants to come in, but understand this is not always possible.
If you are getting remarried after a divorce you are required to provide proof of your divorce. A copy of the Divorce Certificate can be obtained from the court where your divorce was heard.
