Getting Married in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

A growing market for weddings (including same sex weddings, which are legal in Ontario), Niagara Falls offers a large variety of wedding venues of all sizes. You'll first need to obtain a marriage license, available for $100CAN, which must be paid in cash. You each need to show two official pieces of identification such as a passport, birth certificate, or driver's license. Also, if either of you have been previously married, you'll need to show official proof of divorce or death of previous spouse. NOTE: If your divorce was granted outside of Canada, you'll need to follow some additional procedures to get your divorce certified. Allow extra time for this; give the Clerk's office a call for all the details.

You can get your license from the Clerks Department at City Hall, 4310 Queen Street, Niagara Falls, Ontario, telephone 905-356-7521. Your marriage license is valid for three months. The office is open weekdays 8:30 am to 4 pm.
