Getting married in Canada is fairly straightforward. Even though the federal government has overall authority governing marriage and divorce in Canada, the provinces/territories are responsible for establishing laws to regulate and solemnise marriage. Therefore, requirements for marriage vary according to the province/territory in which a person wishes to get married.
As long as provincial requirements are met, anyone can get married in Canada, including same- sex couples. Same-sex marriage is recognised across Canada, with the couple being able to choose to follow either a religious or civil ceremony.
There are no residency requirements to get married in Canada.
