Marriage Licensing

In the Province of Ontario, a Marriage Licence is required to get married. The Town of Caledon issues marriage licences, however, we do not conduct civil marriage ceremonies. Marriage Licences must be used within 90 days of issuance.

The Town of Caledon now offers a convenient online application system for marriage licences in collaboration with ServiceOntario. We encourage applicants to complete the forms and submit the required documents through the ServiceOntario website for a better service experience. 

Service Caledon will contact online applicants within one business day to book an in-person appointment to obtain the Marriage Licence.

If your documents are in a language other than English or French, you must provide a certified translation.

If you are planning to remarry

If you are planning on remarrying in Ontario, there are a few additional documents you must provide.

If you were divorced in Canada:

You will need to bring official proof of the divorce with you when you apply for a marriage licence. This can be the original or a court-certified copy of the certificate of divorce. We do not accept photocopies.

If you were divorced outside of Canada:

 You will need to provide a completed Foreign Divorce Authorization to prove that you are no longer married. The province needs to validate these documents. This process can take up to 4 weeks.

The marriage licensing fee is $159.14. You can pay by cash, Interac, Visa or MasterCard.
