Completed applications should be signed by both applicants and emailed to, with two pieces of acceptable government-issued identification. Identification requirements are included below. If either party has been divorced in Canada, a scanned copy of the original or court-certified true copy of the Certificate of Divorce (Form 36B) or Decree Absolute is also required. A divorce judgement (Form 25A) will not be accepted. 

After your signed application and supporting documents have been submitted, a member of the Clerk's Department will respond to your request and schedule an appointment. Appointments are available at the Town Hall, located at 97 Hurontario St.

Appointments are required for all marriage licences. Walk-ins will not be accepted. The appointment is to obtain your marriage licence only. The Town of Collingwood is not currently offering civil marriage ceremonies. 

The fee for a marriage licence is $156.00 for residents and $200.00 for non-residents, payable at time of pick-up by cash, debit, credit card or cheque.
