Brampton to issue marriage licenses soon on an urgent basis


The City of Brampton will begin to issue marriage licences by appointment on an urgent or compassionate basis on Monday, June 15.

The City had temporarily stopped issuing marriage licences due to the closure of City facilities since March 16, in order to protect staff and residents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marriage licence applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Prior to receiving a license, applicants will be screened according to urgent or compassionate requirements.

The City will prioritize wedding ceremonies set to take place before the end of July 2020. 

Applicants are required to send requests for a marriage licence by email at marriage [dot] licence [at] brampton [dot] ca.

Starting June 15, requests will be vetted through an online application process and, once approved, the City of Brampton will schedule an appointment with the applicants who require a marriage licence on an urgent or compassionate basis.

The health and safety of residents and staff is a top priority at the City of Brampton, so appointments will be made two days a week to limit the number of visitors at City facilities while they remain closed to the public amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Civil ceremonies remain cancelled at this time.
