Ottawa's full service notary public

Mobile and Urgent Services


At Bytowne Notary Public, we provide Mobile and Urgent Services in the Ottawa area upon request. Our professionals will attend your home, hospital, long term care facility or place of work to gather information, and to fully notarize or commission documents, during work hours, in the evenings, or on weekends, as needed.

Combining the best of both worlds, our Mobile and Urgent Services can be used in tandem with our Fast Draft process - leaving you with peace of mind as we attend at your location, ascertain your need, draft your document(s), take any required additional steps, and return to fully notarize or commission your document(s).
Visit our Service Pages to learn about what we have to offer and how we may assist you, then note that most of those services can be secured as a Mobile and Urgent Service. It really is that simple!

Please note that some services - Authentication & Legalization as well as Marriage Abroad documentation - cannot be fully secured as Mobile and Urgent Services due to government timelines. However, we will nonetheless attend at your location and process all documents expeditiously.

Please also note that should you combine our Mobile and Urgent Services with our Fast Draft process, your document production will require a 48 hour turnaround time-frame. Thus, the urgency of your notarization, commissioning or other matter, if a concern, may be affected in instances in which documents are not available and thus require our drafting services.
