Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org articles How do I get married in Ontario? and Who can get married in Ontario?

Here is an excerpt,

To get married in Ontario, you do not have to be a Canadian citizen or live in Ontario. The first step to getting married in Ontario is to get a marriage license.


You may wish to consult a lawyer or immigration consultant regarding immigration and sponsorship pathways for your partner. You may find helpful information in the Settlement.Org articles, How do I find a lawyer? and What other kinds of legal help can I get? on how to find a reputable and registered lawyer or immigration consultant. It may also help to connect with a community resource navigator at 211 to narrow your search. 211 Ontario is a free, confidential service. Their phone service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Here is a link to their live chat if you prefer to communicate online. Their live chat service is available Monday to Friday from 7am-9pm ET.

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.


Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org team
