How do I become qualified to marry people in Ontario

Resolved Question:

How do I become qualified to marry people in Ontario?

There are two types: religious marriage or a civil marriage.
A religious marriage is performed by a religious official of a recognized religious organization who has received authorization from the Office of the Registrar General to perform marriages in Ontario under the Marriage Act. As such, you would need their approval.

Civil Marriages are performed in Ontario by a judge, justice of the peace or municipal clerk.

As such, unless you meet one of these qualifications, you cannot.
