Document Authentication Service is the foremost step when the Canadian documents needs to be officially recognized in other countries.
Depending on the destination country, the document at first needs to be notarized before getting them authenticated by Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa or Official Document Services (ODS) in Toronto.
These requirements may be confusing and stressful and hence our experts would be happy to handle the authentication process of your documents saving you valuable time and money.
This is called authentication and legalization. It is a 2-step process:
Global Affairs Canada, Official Document Services and each Embassy have specific requirements for the documents authentication and legalization.
The seal, stamp and signature on documents notarized by the notary public or commissioners of oath are authenticated. This is typically done by Global Affairs Canada. Sometimes this process can be completed by an appropriate provincial authority
The Official Documents Services (ODS) is a government body authorized to certify the authenticity of a document by issuing the Certificate of Authentication. Again, ODS verifies the seal, stamp and signature of a notary public or a commissioner of oath.
ODS does not validate the content of documents.
In countries that are signatories of the Hague Convention they use the term ‘Apostille’.
Apostille also means to authenticate official documents of foreign origin.
Canada is NOT part of Hague Convention so a ‘Certificate of Authentication’ is required instead.
A photocopy of an original document produced and certified by a person authorized to do so.
Before documents can be authenticated by the Government of Canada they need to be certified or notarized. The rules for certification of documents and who qualifies as a Canadian notary public change between provinces and territories.
Notarized or certified means that a Canadian notary public or commissioner for oaths has signed or put a seal on your document or on a separate certificate that they have prepared, signed and attached to it.
