• Get a License or Permit


Please contact the Clerk’s Department by phone at 905-852-9181 or email to apply for licenses, permits, freedom of information requests, or other legal/procedural matters. A Commissioner of Oaths is available, by appointment, for matters of extreme urgency. No on-site wedding ceremonies will be performed until further notice.

Marriage Licences

Application forms may be picked up in the Clerk's Department. The application must be completed and signed by both parties. Once completed, either one or both of the parties may bring in the form to obtain a Marriage Licence. If only one person decides to come to obtain the Licence, the birth certificate/drivers licence/passport of each party must accompany the application. If either or both parties are divorced, the original, or a certified copy, of the Certificate of Divorce is required. A Marriage Licence is valid for 90 days after the date issued and may be used anywhere in Ontario. To ensure your licence can be issued, contact the Clerk's Assistant to confirm that the proper signing officials are present to issue the license. Payment of $125.00 is required at the issuance of the Marriage Licence.
