Default will our marriage cert need translated?

If we get to the supporting documents stage our marriage cert is in Spanish(we got married there) but is also bi-lingual in French.
All our application forms and other supporting docs will be in English, but with French being an official language in Canada too will this be ok or will we need it translated to English?

thanks

Hi AmyDavid, the link to the checklist document you posted is useful, I haven't seen that specific one before. Great to print & tick off when collating evidence! Cheers

That is the London Specific one - so if your submitting documents to CIC London, you need to make sure you use this one so you do not miss anything they will expect you to send.

You also need to attach the checklist to your application.
