Changes to Vital Statistics Act impacting Registration of Marriage

On July 9, 2019, there are legislative and regulatory amendments to the Vital Statistics Act that are being implemented, which will have an impact on the process of the Registration of Marriage.

X as a sex indicator will be available for individuals who do not identify exclusively as male or female to be represented on their Vital Statistics certificates. Because of the legislative amendments, we have also revised our forms and documents to reflect the changes.

The following new forms and documents will be in effect on July 9, 2019:
