Default Re: im back again - Visitor can marry?

All marriages in Canada require some sort of licence. Visitors can marry
but the exact rules differ from province to province. Check the various
provincial web-sites.

Are you intending on marrying a Canadian or are you talking about youa nd
your fiancee going to Canada from the UK and marrying?

If you are tlaking baout marrying a Canadian in Canada then you can go there
and get married and apply from within using spousal sponsorship.
If you are just both UK citizens then you can go to Canada and get married
but you cant apply for PR from within Canada, or rather you could apply to
CHC London whilst being in Canada as visitors but you couldnt do anythingin
Canada but be visitors.

As you mentioned conjugal partners in yoru early post i presume you are
talking about goign to Canada to marry a Canadian?

I think you need to post more detail of your situation and aims.

You will have to get a marriage license of course, but if you have been married before you will also need proof that you are able to get married again. If you are a widow, no problem as a death certificate is fine (that is what I had to show). If you are divorced and the divorce was in another country, you will have to get a lawyer to issue a legal opinion on the validity of your divorce in Canada. That basically means go to a lawyer and have him examine the divorce decree and give you a letter saying it is valid to show at the courthouse when you go to get your marriage license. If you still use your previous married name, be sure to bring your birth ceritificate or something else with your original name on it as they will use it and not the name you are using on the marriage license. That one threw me when we went to get ours. Apparently they don't consider the married name to have been a legal name change here and want you to go back to your maiden name!
