Certificates needed for legal purposes are $30 (includes HST). Please fill out a baptismal or marriage certificate request form. These forms should only be used for requests for certificates of baptism or marriage from congregations within the boundaries of Canadian Shield Regional Council, Antler River Watershed Regional Council, Western Ontario Waterways Regional Council, Horseshoe Falls Regional Council, Shining Waters Regional Council, and East Central Ontario Regional Council, (formerly Manitou, Bay of Quinte, London, Hamilton, and Toronto Conferences). For requests for certificates from other regions of Canada please consult the appropriate Regional Council Archives.
The Certificate Form should be completed only after a search of our holdings on Archeion has indicated that the baptism or marriage records are at the Archives. The form is not meant for family history research.
The new United Church of Canada structure comes into effect January 1, 2019. As the structure is implemented there may be changes to where records will reside. Please check the website for updates or contact us with any questions. If you are wondering which Archives is responsible for your Regional Council, please visit the United Church of Canada Archives Network directory.
