Not in Ontario.

Citizenship or Permanent Residency isn't an issue when applying for a marriage licence unless the non-citizen has a divorce granted in a jurisdiction other than Canada.

If that scenario arises, you'll need to have the foreign marriage examined by a lawyer for validity and then submit the lawyer's letter to the Registrar General's office for approval.

Not sure what you mean by "having issues" with him coming here, but if those issues are legal issues in regards to him being eligible to enter Canada, then he may not qualify for Permanent Resident's status.

I don't think there is an reason you can't legally marry so long as you observe the niceties of Alberta marriage law like a licence etc.

Once you're married you can initiate an application for Permanent Resident's status.

The question about you being able to remain on Canada while that application is reviewed is a little trickier. I would think you could stay in Canada so long as your work visa is valid, and you may, depending on your country of citizenship, be able to stay in Canada as a visitor if your work visa expires.

The best qualified people to answer this last question are the advisors at Citizenship and Immigration Canada. You can contact them through a toll-free telephone number available under the Contact Us section of this web site.

Marriage laws vary according to the province you are getting married in. Your fiance is an Albertan - are you getting married in Alberta? If so, Service Alberta: Marriage Licences

If not, just visit the provincial website of wherever you want to get married.

Good luck!

Getting married means just that: you're married.

It doesn't automatically grant you the right to legally work.

I think rather than getting information on an internet forum, you'd be better served by contacting one of the staff members at Citizenship and Immigration Canada. You'll be able to ask specific questions and receive official answers.

There is a toll-free telephone number listed on the Contact Us page at Welcome Page | Page d'accueil

My Canadian fiance wants to marry me in Canada because he thinks this will entitle me to Canadian medical for the birth of out unborn child. Thats only 2 months away and I think that there is more to becoming a citizen or resident than simply marrage and fear that the processing time will take longer than the baby has to being born. Is this true or am i just parinoid
