Subject: Canadian Resident wants to marry American in Ca.
  hi,
I am an American citizen and I received my Canadian residency in late 2006. Although I officially "landed", I have not been living in Canada. Still,I would like to get married there (where I keep an address at my daughter´s house) to my U.S. boyfriend.

Are there any restrictions on a Canadian resident marrying an American in Canada? Do you have to have been "in residence" for a certain period of time? I don´t even yet have my Social Insurance number--just my residency card.
Thank you to all responders.

Jen, you may be dancing with trouble. You can be asked to prove you were fufilling your residency requirements and an address is simply not enough. No pay stubs, no telephone bills, no credit card charges in Canada, no scans of your passport back and forth across the boarder.

If it were as easy as you think it is... people would not be losing their PR status for unmet residency requirements.

Eric, your wife is not done with her troubles either.

Hi Jen,

You have to check with each province. In Ontario there are no residency/citizenship requirements for the issuance of marriage license.
