Find a Marriage Commissioner

The Ministry of Justice and Attorney General is reviewing fees payable to marriage commissioners pursuant to The Marriage Regulations, 1997. Pursuant to section 5 of the Regulations, a marriage commissioner is entitled to the following:

  • a fee of either:
    • $75 for conducting a marriage ceremony; or
    • $100 if the marriage commissioner attends a rehearsal or other meeting and also conducts a marriage ceremony; and
  • travel expenses in accordance with a tariff if the parties agree to the payment before the ceremony and the marriage commissioner is required to travel outside the municipality in which he or she resides. 

The current provision can be found in The Marriage Regulations, 1997

The travel tariff is 44.83 cents/kilometre. 

The Ministry of Justice and Attorney General is considering increasing the fees or removing the limits in their entirety allowing marriage commissioners to set their own fee for service. We would be pleased to receive any comments respecting an increase in fees or removal of fees prior to December 31, 2018 via email.

The fee for a marriage commissioner is $75.00. If the couple request a rehearsal or other meeting, there is an extra charge of $25, increasing the marriage commissioner fee to $100. All marriage commissioners are entitled to receive a mileage fee of 44.83 cents/kilometre.
