Get Marriage Registration Certificate in Calgary

Alberta Vital Statistics maintains a record of all marriages that occur in Alberta and can only issue certificates for events that have taken place in Alberta. A Marriage certificate may be ordered at a registry office, after the marriage ceremony has taken place and a 3-4 week period has passed, if you wish to obtain a copy of the certificate. Marriage certificates are not automatically issued to couples getting married in Alberta. The Marriage certificate is issued based on the information from the original registration of marriage.


 Large Certificate:

   This certificate is about half a page in size.

   Shows the bride and grooms names, birth places, date and place of marriage as well
      as the registration number.

 Certified Copy of Registration:

  This is a copy of the document that you signed when the marriage took place.


Both certificate applications can be found here

Marriage Certificate Application

 If there was a marriage in the period that was requested the search letter will only confirm that a marriage took place and not the specific marriage information.


Certificates or search letters ordered and sent to our office often arrive within 2-4 business days **search letters may take longer**. If the certificate is mailed directly to you it can take up to 3 weeks to come in the mail.


If there are discrepancies between the information you provide and the vital statistics record, amendment forms will be sent to you by vital statistics, by mail, directly to your address. These documents can take 3-6 weeks to be sent to you and will delay the certificates from being printed until the necessary steps take place to amend the document.
