Tyendinaga Township does not issue Marriage Licences.
Information as of February 8, 2021:
Amendments were made to the Marriage Act to extend the three-month validity period for unused marriage licences purchased between December 1, 2019 and July 24, 2020, the termination of the first province-wide emergency due to COVID-19.
An extension period is triggered only if a province wide emergency is declared under the EMPCA. As a second province-wide declaration of emergency has been made, the validity period has been extended for certain licences issued. Please take note of the following:
- Licences issued between December 1, 2019 and July 24, 2020 are still valid and can be used until July 24, 2022; and
- Licences issued between October 1, 2020 and the end of the second province-wide emergency due to COVID-19 will be valid from the date they are issued until 24 months from the end of the second province-wide emergency.
Note: the validity period for marriage licence issued between July 25, 2020 and September 30, 2020 has not been extended. These licences were only valid for three months from the date issued since there was no province-wide emergency during this timeframe. If, for any reason, couples did not use their licence issued during this timeframe and still wish to be married, they will need to purchase another one.
