Requirements

Couples must purchase a valid Ontario Marriage Licence. A marriage licence may be purchased from the Town of LaSalle Civic Centre at 5950 Malden Road or at most municipal offices in Ontario. Please refer to our Marriage Licence Requirements on our website for more information. If the marriage licence is purchased in another municipality, it must be provided to the officiator no later than 1 week prior to the ceremony. The Town of LaSalle does not provide witnesses for the ceremony. Couples must provide the two witnesses required according to section 25 of the Marriage Act. There is no set minimum age for a person to be a witness to a civil ceremony; the officiant for the ceremony must be satisfied that the witness understands what he/she is signing. Couples are responsible for providing a language interpreter, if required, for a language other than English. The persons being married cannot act as the interpreter for the ceremony or cannot be a witness to either party.
