Ontario Genealogy: Divorce Records
Canadian Divorce Records
From 1867 to 1968, anyone wanting a divorce had to place a notice of intent to petition the government for an Act of Divorce in the Canada Gazette and in two newspapers in the district or county where the petitioner resided. It was to appear for a six-month period.
The petition contained details such as the date and place of the marriage, and facts regarding the end of the marriage. In the case of adultery or bigamy, a co-respondent was often named.Parliament then passed an Act of Divorce nullifying the marriage.
Between 1867 and 1963, a transcript of the Act was published in the Statutes of Canada for the current year.
