Obtaining a Copy of a Marriage or Civil Union Contract

To obtain a copy of a marriage or civil union contract, contact the notary before whom the contract was signed or, if applicable, the notary’s successor.

The notary who has the original contract may be found by

  • contacting the Chambre des notaires du Québec if the marriage was performed prior to July 1, 1970 or
  • contacting the Register of personal and movable real rights, if the marriage was performed on or after July 1, 1970 or if the contract concerns a civil union.

If the notary who has the original contract cannot be found, the Chambre des notaires du Québec may help to conduct a search.
