We provide Certification of Copies services, where we confirm that copies of documents are true and accurate representations of the original documents. This service is often required for legal processes where the original document cannot be submitted and a certified copy is needed for verification purposes.

Witnessing Signatures

Our firm offers Witnessing Signatures services, where we observe the signing of documents and attest to the authenticity of the signature. This is essential for various legal documents, such as wills and property deeds, ensuring that the signatory’s identity is verified and the signature is genuine.

Drafting and Commissioning Affidavits

We specialize in Drafting and Commissioning Affidavits, creating sworn statements that are used as evidence in court. Our role is to ensure that the content of the affidavit is truthful and to administer the oath where the declarant affirms the truthfulness of the statement under penalty of perjury.

Statutory Declarations Confirming Identity

We provide services for drafting and notarizing Statutory Declarations Confirming Identity. These declarations are often required in legal situations where proof of identity is necessary and no other form of identification is available.

Our firm prepares and notarizes Statutory Declarations of Marital Status, which are often required for legal processes like marriage registration in foreign countries, divorce proceedings, or other legal matters where marital status needs to be officially declared.

Frequently asked questions.

What’s the difference between notarizing and commissioning a document?

Notarizing refers to the act of a notary public verifying the authenticity of documents, signatures, or declarations. Commissioning, on the other hand, involves a commissioner for oaths confirming that an oath or affirmation has been properly administered.

Do I need a notary public or a commissioner for oaths?

It depends on the document. If you need to swear or affirm that the contents of a document are true, you’ll need a commissioner for oaths. If you require authentication of a signature or a document itself, you’ll typically need a notary public.

Are all lawyers notaries and commissioners in Canada?

While not all lawyers are notaries, many are. In most provinces, being a practicing lawyer grants one the authority to act as a commissioner for oaths. However, to act as a notary public, a lawyer usually has to apply and may need additional training or certification.

Why would I need a document notarized?

Documents may need to be notarized to verify their authenticity or the validity of signatures, especially if they’re to be used outside of Canada. Examples include consent to travel documents, affidavits for court, and international business contracts.

How can I verify if someone is a licensed notary or commissioner in Canada?

Most provinces have regulatory bodies or societies that oversee notaries and commissioners. For example, in Ontario, you can check with the Law Society of Ontario or the Ontario Society of Notaries Public. Always verify the credentials of a notary or commissioner before using their services.
