The marriage commissioner fee structure has recently been reviewed. There have been changes to the Marriage Regulations, 1997.
Marriage commissioners were entitled to be paid a fee of $75 for the ceremony and an additional fee of $25 if the couple requested a meeting or rehearsal prior to the ceremony. They could also charge a mileage fee pursuant to The Public Service Act, 1998.
The following changes have been made effective immediately.
Marriage commissioners can now charge a minimum fee of $75. There is no maximum fee amount. The final cost, including mileage, is determined by the marriage commissioner after discussions with the parties.
Should you have any questions regarding the new changes to the fee structure, please contact the Marriage Unit at (306) 787-3869, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
