In Saskatchewan, couples who want to marry must purchase a Saskatchewan Marriage Licence.
Marriage licences become effective the day after they are purchased and are valid for 90 days. It is therefore necessary to plan your Marriage Licence purchase from 1 to 90 days prior to the wedding.
Both people must be present for the purchase of the licence and both must present two pieces of government issued identification to the Marriage Licence Issuer. One of the pieces of identification must be photo identification. Examples of acceptable identification include a birth certificate, passport, driver's licence, citizenship or permanent resident card or Treaty card.
If either person is divorced, evidence of the termination of the marriage must be presented to the Marriage Licence Issuer when purchasing the marriage licence. The following documents are acceptable as proof of the dissolution of marriage: The original or a court certified copy of the "Decree Absolute" of Divorce; or the original or court certified copy of the "Certificate of Divorce."
