Marriage certificates & documents

How to apply

You can order a marriage document from within or outside of Alberta.

What’s important to know

There is a $20 government fee for ordering marriage documents, as well as registry agent or Registry Connect service fees. Fees vary among registry agents.

Documents are usually mailed to you 2-3 days after a registry agent or registry connect processes the application. If information is missing or there are any discrepancies in information, an application may be delayed. Documents are sent to you by regular mail. For special arrangements or rush service options, speak with a registry agent or Registry Connect.

Application for copies of Registrations of Marriage 75 years old and older (from the date of marriage) must be made through the Provincial Archives of Alberta.
