Marriages Could be Offered at City Hall in Niagara Falls

September 10, 2019

You may soon be able to tie the knot at city hall in Niagara Falls.

City council will consider a staff report tonight.

About 15 years ago, the Marriage Act changed, allowing municipal clerks to perform civil marriages.

Since then, many places in Niagara have offered a cheaper alternative to expensive traditional marriages.

A ceremony at City Hall will set you back a few hundred dollars.

Some of the places in Niagara offering civil unions right now are Fort Erie, St. Catharines and Welland.
