A religious marriage officiant, commonly referred to as a clergy person, or religious representative, is an official of a religious body authorized to perform marriages in Alberta.
The governing authority of a recognized religious body must register its clergy/religious representatives with Vital Statistics before they can perform marriages in Alberta.
A governing authority is a leader (e.g., chairman, president, elder, etc.) elected by the religious body to represent the organization to Vital Statistics.
As there are over 8000 clergy registered in Alberta, a public list is not available. To find an authorized clergy person/religious representative, contact the applicable church or religious organization.
There are no legal differences between getting married by a religious officiant and marriage commissioner.
