You should be worrying what the Phil. gov’t. look for if you are marrying a foreigner. I mean documents.
Of course any marriage license issued in any country as long as the officiating official is licensed to officiate.There is a gov’t office in the Philippines that called Census where all official documents forwarded to their archive, if you need legal documents then they will issue that with their official seal. Meaning it’s a genuine legal papers.
After the marriage he can get an application from the Canada Immigration. All he has to do is call the canada immigration office inquire and ask for application.

  1. my mom married my dad who is an american. he went there to marry her and then went back early for his job, and she followed the next month. yes your marriage is valid anywhere you go. file the documents as soon as you want. all the paper work will be done but it might take a little linger cause you know how filipinos like to process papers……
