The Vital Statistics Branch registers marriages and provides marriage certificates for marriages occuring in the Province of New Brunswick.
Any person who provides the correct information and fee, providing the certificate is not used for any unlawful or improper use.
IMPORTANT: A person applying for a marriage certificate who is not one of the persons named on the certificate, must provide written consent of one of the persons named on the certificate. The consent must be dated and signed by the person named on the certificate. This written consent must be faxed or mailed along with the application to Vital Statistics in order for the application to be processed. Certificates will not be issued without this written consent.
