If you wish to change the form of your relationship from a Civil Union to a Marriage or vice versa you can do so without having to dissolve your current relationship...

“CAN A COUPLE CHANGE THEIR CIVIL UNION TO A MARRIAGE OR THEIR MARRIAGE TO A CIVIL UNION?

Where a couple in a civil union wish to continue in a relationship with each other and are otherwise eligible to marry, they may change the form of their relationship to a marriage without having to formally dissolve their civil union.

The process begins with a ‘Notice of intended marriage, change of relationship from civil union’ form.

Similarly, a married couple who wish to continue in a relationship with each other may change the form of that relationship to a civil union without being required to formally dissolve their marriage.

In this case they would begin by completing a ‘Notice of intended civil union, change of relationship from marriage’ form.

In either case, the couple will be required to produce evidence of their current relationship. ….”
