Alberta Marriage Laws
For more information on obtaining a marriage license or marriage requirements, please go to the Alberta Vital Statistics website.
Couples must provide two witnesses over the age of 18 years (one for each partner) who must be present at the ceremony. There will be an additional cost of $100 for a marriage commissioner to provide two witnesses.
Officiants and the ceremony itself:
The marriage commissioner will act as the officiant of the ceremony. The civil marriage service will be a non-denominational ceremony, which adheres to the requirements of the Ministry of Government Services.
Alberta offers civil marriage services to all eligible couples, including same-sex couples.
