Civil Marriage Solemnization

Be prepared to sweep the Marriage Ceremony off its feet by learning and performing how to provide a civil wedding ceremony. Ontario Regulation 285/04 has authorized clerks of 'local municipalities' to perform civil marriages and municipalities across Ontario have been the go to point for thousands of couples who wish to have their ceremonies performed under a civil performance. Should a municipality choose to provide this service; the Municipal Clerk has the ability to delegate the responsibility to perform these marriages to any person, other than a member of council, under the authority of Subsection 228(4) of the Municipal Act. Participants to this one-day workshop will be provided with an overview of pertinent sections of the Marriage Act and its legislative requirements.
