Sample Letter to Expedite Your Marriage Licence Registration

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

Here is a sample letter that could be given to your Officiant to request that your marriage licence be expedited for processing. The Officiant can attach this to your licence when they send it. Only your Officiant can mail your licence, so if you give them additional items to include in the mailing you need to provide your Officiant with a pre-paid Xpress Post envelope (or $15 to get one). The entire process, including the next steps for expediting your marriage certificate is explained here:

Sample Letter:

The Office of the Registrar General P.O. Box 4600, 3rd Floor 189 Red River Road Thunder Bay, Ontario - P7B 6L8

Therefore, it is absolutely essential for us that we receive the requested documents as early as possible as we are required by the CIC immigration documents checklist to attach copies of our marriage certificate and registration. If you have any questions regarding this request, please feel free to contact me or my spouse at the information given at the end of this letter. Thank you, once again, for your cooperation and consideration.
