Civil union, like civil marriage, is an act performed by two people who agree to live together and to respect the rights and obligations of their union. Unlike civil marriage, which is valid everywhere in the world, civil union is only recognized in Quebec or in countries that allow it.
To unite civilly, you must not be married or in a civil union with another person. You will need to give free and informed consent, meaning that no one can force you to do so and that you must understand the effects of your civil union. It is not possible to unite with a person with whom you are related or if one of the spouses has been declared totally incompetent by the court.
The celebration of your civil union must follow the same formalities and the same requirements as a civil marriage. Finally, civil union spouses must respect the same rights and obligations as spouses who are civilly married.
Authorized civil union celebrants are, among others, notaries, a clerk, a mayor or a municipal councillor.
You could also designate a loved one to celebrate your civil union. The spouses must be physically present at their civil union ceremony and cannot be represented by proxy.
