Corporate Services -- Clerk's Division

The Clerk's Division is a team led by the City Clerk, dedicated to providing a variety of services.  This Division could be described as the "glue" that binds the City together.  It is the principal administrative group within the Municipality and its roll is a critical one.   The primary role of the Clerk's Division is driven by provincial legislation, particularly the Municipal Act, the Municipal Elections Act, the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Vital Statistics Act and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

The main functions performed by this Division include City Hall Reception, Printing Program, Corporate Messenger Program, Vital Statistics and Lottery Licensing and includes Commissioners of Oaths on hand to assist the public.  The Clerk's main office includes the City Clerk, Deputy Clerk, and Client Service Representatives that help to deliver in the various programs.  This main office prepares Council Agendas, Minutes, By-laws, Resolutions and Legal Functions etc.  This Division is also the official archivist for the Municipality and preserves Council documents and all matters of public record. 

Due to changes to the Marriage Act, Municipal Clerks can now perform Civil Marriage Ceremonies, so you can celebrate your special day with a convenient and affordable ceremony for all eligible couples. Ceremonies are dignified and non-denominational and can be performed by Cornwall's City Clerk or her appointees.
