Register of officiants

Élections municipales 2017 : Veuillez prendre note que les maires, conseillers municipaux, conseillers d'arrondissements et autres élus municipaux sont autorisés à célébrer des mariages et des unions civiles tant qu'ils occupent cette charge. En conséquence, ils ne peuvent plus célébrer de mariages ni d'unions civiles après que leur fonction ait pris fin. Ainsi, dans l'attente de la mise à jour du Répertoire des municipalités, l'information au registre des célébrants concernant l'autorisation de certains élus municipaux pourrait ne pas être conforme aux résultats électoraux du 5 novembre dernier.

2017 municipal elections: Please note that mayors, municipal and borough councelors as well as other municipal representatives are authorized to solemnize marriages and civil unions as long as they hold office. Therefore, they are not allowed to solemnize any marriage or civil union once they are not re-elected. While waiting for an update of the Répertoire des municipalités, information in the register of officiants regarding authorized officiants may not be consistent with election results of November 5, 2017.

The register of officiants is a database containing the names of persons authorized to perform a marriage or civil union. Future spouses can consult this register on line to check that the officiant they have chosen is authorized to perform the ceremony on the scheduled date.

The register of officiants is updated daily and can be queried over a two-year period starting from today’s date; that is, from May 24, 2019 to May 24, 2021.

N.B.: You cannot consult the register to find a potential officiant, but rather to check that the person you have chosen is authorized by the Directeur de l’état civil to perform the marriage or civil union.

The search is done in three steps:

  1. Enter the officiant’s name
  2. Enter the date of the ceremony and select the officiant
  3. Obtain the search result

Enter the officiant’s name

Enter the surname and given name of the officiant you have chosen. Only the hyphen, apostrophe and alphabetic characters can be entered in these boxes. The search will be done phonetically, giving results beyond the exact name you entered.

The information given conforms to the register of officiants of the Directeur de l’état civil as of May 23, 2019. The masculine form is used only to simplify the text and it designates both women and men.
