Marriage Licence Application

To help break the chain of transmission of COVID-19 the City of Markham will only issue marriage licences to fulfill an URGENT requirement or on a compassionate basis only.  This is done by appointment only by calling 905-477-7000 ext 2366 Monday to Friday between 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The marriage licence is valid for 90 days (this legislation has not changed).
