I live in Alberta, but getting married in Ontario, and then returning to Alberta.

Do I need to get the certificate in Alberta or in Ontario?

Does it matter?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some information on the Service Alberta website.

It states:

an Alberta Marriage Licence is only valid for an Alberta marriage – the wedding must take place in Alberta


and


After the ceremony,

  • the marriage officiant keeps the marriage licence portion of the form and submits the Registration of Marriage portion for registration within 2 days of the ceremony
  • the Registration of Marriage document is permanently archived with Alberta Vital Statistics
  • Alberta marriage certificates can be ordered at an Alberta registry agent office


You can contact them for verification here:

780-427-7013 (Edmonton)

310-0000, then 780-427-7013 (toll-free)

8:15 am - 4:30 pm (Monday to Friday, closed statutory holidays)

You mentioned that you wanted to get married in Ontario.

You can find information regarding how to get married in Ontario in our Settlement.Org How do I get married in Ontario? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
