Obtaining a Divorce Certificate

To obtain your divorce certificate, you will need to contact the Supreme Court registry where your divorce was filed. Registry staff at the court location you contact will be able to assist you with your questions. The cost for a divorce certificate is $40 Canadian.

To request the divorce certificate by mail, please include a letter with pertinent information regarding your divorce, your mailing address, telephone number, a cheque or money order payable to the Minister of Finance for $50 in Canadian funds (includes $10 mailing fee) and mail it to the applicable court registry.

If you are unsure of the location where your divorce was filed, your best course of action would be to contact the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings for Canada, located in Ottawa. They will not be able to provide you with the document, however, they will be able to confirm at which registry your divorce was filed. They can be reached at:

Telephone: 613 957-4519
