Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

It may be best to contact ServiceOntario directly for some information and advice specific to your situation. You can find their contact information here:

According to Service Ontario on providing proof of emergency for an expedited marriage certificate:
To qualify for an emergency or expedited marriage certificate or for an expedited marriage search, the marriage must be registered in Ontario and you must provide proof of urgency along with your complete and correct applications forms and fee.
Proof of urgency may include:
  • documentation of a medical emergency
  • a letter confirming new employment
  • a letter from a consulate or embassy confirming an appointment
  • travel reservations including airline tickets, reservations or travel itinerary
  • a letter confirming an appointment for an immigration hearing
  • a wedding invitation, where the applicant is a party to the marriage
  • other situations subject to review
To submit an urgent request for a marriage certificate, you can:
  • Download and complete a Request for marriage certificate application
  • Complete and submit a Request for certificate services with payment (Download as PDF)
    • attach your completed Request for marriage certificate application to this request
    • attach your proof of urgency documents
    • attach your supporting documents (for example, court documents) if applicable
    • submit your payment

    We hope this information is helpful. Please follow up with us if you have any further questions.
