All specific questions related to Marriage
Certificates and name change are handled through the city hall where the
Marriage Licence was purchased or by contacting the Office of the
Registrar General of Ontario (1.800.461.2156)
All Licenced Officiants are responsible to mail the
completed Marriage Licence to Office of the Registrar General in Thunder
Bay within 48 hours of your wedding.
That is Celebrating Life Ministries firm policy and we are
careful to fulfill this responsibility on your behalf.
The Record of Solemnization (tear off portion of
the licence) is given to each couple on the day of the wedding.
It is not in the practice of the licensing office
in Thunder Bay to issue a receipt or acknowledgment of registering your
marriage. To receive your official Marriage Certificate YOU must apply
for it 12 weeks following your wedding. If YOU do not apply for a
Marriage Certificate, YOU will not receive one.
We will always follow the policies and procedures
of the Ontario government and our licensing body.
