Beginning September 8, 2021, the Town is expanding appointment-based in-person services at the Civic Centre for marriage licences, commissioner of oaths, planning and development, and other requests as required. Appointments will be available Monday to Friday during regular business hours.

The Town of East Gwillimbury (EG) offers Commissioner of Oaths services (sometimes referred to as Commissioner for Taking Affidavits).

The document is presented to the Commissioner to affirm that the contents are true.

The Town also provides certified documents. These documents are generally requested when copies of identification or documents require a “Certified True Copy” statement.
