Attestation Canada

What is Attestation in Canada?

A document Attestation is the establishment of a foreign document’s authenticity. Attesting, in this sense, means to approve or verify. An attestation is an official act that requires some legal authority, such as a judge or commissioner for oaths (ex: Public Notary). Hence “Attestation” is used for international purposes like consular issues. In Canada, the equivalent is “document authentication and legalization”.

What is the process of attesting a document?

The process of Attesting a document includes 3 steps

  • The Attestation is performed by an Attesting Officer who verifies the authenticity of the document and the signature on it, then seals and stamps the Attestation with his/her seal.
  • A Notary Public Attests the signature on the document matching it to that on the attestation certificate which is guaranteed by their seal. 
  • Finally, Attesting Officers often provide a translation in one of Canada’s other official languages (either French or English).

Documents that require an attestation

Documents that require Attestation in Canada are defined as “any document, which is issued or produced in Canada to be used outside of the jurisdiction of the Attesting Officer”. Hence if you have any documents issued from Canada and it needs to be “Attested” and verified in Canada by an officer who is located here. Then we can Attest it for you.
