My boyfriend (Mexican citizen) and I (Canadian citizen) want to have a civil marriage in Ontario this year. What is the process we would need to go through? We would get his birth certificate, passport and driver’s licence translated… He also wants to change his last name to be mine. He is going to move here the following year once he finishes university in Mexico. We would like for him to also apply for his Canadian citizenship along this process.
