Affidavits
An affidavit is a document containing a statement or statements that someone - the deponent - swears to be true to the best of their knowledge.

Authentication & Legalization
Documents notarized in Canada for use abroad must go through a process of "authentication" and "legalization" in order to be valid in the foreign jurisdiction.

Certified True Copies
It is sometimes necessary to obtain and use copies of a document rather than the actual document itself. Also, in some instances, it may be necessary to swear as to the veracity of an online document or e-document.

Commissioner of Oaths
Commissioners of Oaths are persons provincially empowered to administer and witness the swearing of oaths or solemn affirmations in the taking of an affidavit for any legal matter.

Consent to Travel Documents
As a result of concern for the safety of children, most governments - including Canada’s - now possess special requirements with regard to the travel of children under the age of majority, typically 18 years of age, should such travel be undertaken without both parents.

Letters of Invitation
In some instances, foreign nationals intent on visiting Canada must present a notarized letter of invitation from a Canadian citizen or resident to Canadian embassy, high commission or consular officers in the foreign country.

Marriage Abroad
If planning a wedding abroad, it is of great importance that you get all of the required documents before leaving. In most instances, you’ll require a “Statement in Lieu of a Certificate of Non-Impediment to Marriage Abroad”, issued by authorities in Canada.

Notary | Mobile Notary | Urgent Mobile Notary
A notary public is a government-appointed official witness to the execution (signing and other legalization) of documents. A notary also administers oaths, solemn affirmations, and declarations for the purposes of affidavits and statutory declarations.

Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the right and capacity to act on another’s behalf.

Statutory Declarations
