Default Getting Married in Canada

Hello,

Could anyone please tell me if you have to have a marriage license in the uk before being able to get married in Canada, or can you just do the whole thing in Canada? I cant find any information anywhere.

My wife is Canadian, I'm the Brit. We got married in Canada (before applying for PR) and I don't recall nationality being anything to do with it.

I was advised that a few weeks after marrying I should get a Canadian version of my birth certificate.

That was in Quebec.

Citizenship/Residency

There are no citizenship or residency requirements when applying for a marriage licence in Ontario or BC (and probably the other Provinces, Google "marriage in <insert Province>".

If either of you have been divorced it makes it slightly more complicated, please read the websites for details.

Thank you everyone for your replies..
I have done some more researching and I have found out that We can apply for the marriage license in Canada before we get married and then we have a 3 month time frame to get married in.
Thank you, you have all been very helpful x

Here you go: http://www.whistler.ca/residents/mun...etting-married

Not available online for BC unfortunately, one of you has to apply in person - but it is valid on the day of issuance and then up to 90 days afterwards.

There are several different marriage commissioners, here's a list: http://www.vs.gov.bc.ca/cgi-bin/sear...sortby=surname

Followed by a virtual online consummation...I imagine the practicalities of that bit won't be too unfamiliar to most blokes...
