COVID-19 UPDATE:

Please be advised that our offices remain closed to the public and due to the Provincial gathering restrictions, we are currently not providing any Civil Marriage Ceremonies or processing any Marriage Licences at the Town of East Gwillimbury.

Some appointment based services, such as Civil Ceremonies are anticipated to resume when York Region moves to the Provincially designated "Orange Zone".

As a result of COVID-19 the Government of Ontario has amended the Marriage Act that allow couples to use their expired marriage licence if the following conditions are met:

  • The licence was issued between December 1, 2019 and July 24, 2020; and

Since the license was issued;

  • It has not been used (i.e., the couple has not married each other),
  • Neither party has married anyone else, and
  • Neither party has legally changed their name.

If you meet all of these conditions, your licence will be valid for until an additional 2 years from July 24, 2020 (the end of the COVID-19 Declaration of Emergency in Ontario).
