How do I organise it?
Couples wishing to be married in Canada need to go to the local authorities in their chosen area. A marriage license can be obtained with photo ID and proof of age. There is no residency requirement for gay couples wishing to be married in Canada . The age requirement for most of Canada is 18, except in British Columbia , where it is 17.
There is no waiting period for gay marriage in Canada , but couples do need two witnesses for the ceremony. The witnesses do not have to know the couple personally to qualify.
A small fee, usually around $100, is needed to obtain the marriage license.
