Getting Ordained in Ontario?

Hi Ladies!  My FI and I are curious about getting someone ordained to marry us.  I know my uncle (who is a bit of an attention lover, and totally hilarious) would be honoured to do it, but I also know that getting ordained and allowed to perform weddings in Ontario is not as simple as in the US...

Has anyone had any experience with this?

    Boo-urns.  That's what I thought.

    Perhaps not much consolation but maybe he could do a reading, or MC the reception?

    I know getting married in advance is frowned upon around here, but if you really wanted him to participate could you get married at City Hall in the morning (or the day before) and then get him to do a "fake" ceremony?  Just make sure people know that his isn't the real one?

    Thanks for the input ladies.

    I know, even if I tried to stop him, my uncle will be up at the mic telling embarassing stories, so he'll get his moment in the sun!!

    As for the "fake" ceremony... I did think about it briefly, but couldn't bring myself to think about it any more than that.  I'm the first to get married of my siblings and cousins, and I know that would break my family's heart.
