About Canada Parliamentary Marriage and Divorces, 1867-1919

From 1867 to 1919, civil divorces in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba were granted by private acts of the Parliament of Canada. This database includes the names of the spouses, places of residence at the time of the marriage and divorce, other marriages (if noted), and dates of marriage and divorce (the date when the act became law) for divorce acts from this period. The original records may include additional information such as other places of residence, occupations, additional court action taken, and number of children (and occasionally their names or genders), if any. The very restrictive grounds for the cost of a divorce made them quite rare; the records are, however, worth obtaining when they apply.
