Marriage Certificates

After the marriage ceremony, the couple receives a Record of Solemnization of Marriage.  This is not a marriage certificate.  The person who solemnizes the marriage forwards documentation to the Office of the Registrar General for registration.  Visit the Service Ontario website to apply online for a marriage certificate or call 1-800-461-2156.
