We help our clients to get their notarized translation authenticated by Global Affairs Canada. This process takes up to 20 days, so take care of this in a timely manner, please. We will make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Authentication is the process when a notary’s signature gets approval by Federal authorities. Authenticated documents are only required by other countries and not needed for use in Canada. Authentication proves that the signature of an official (notary) on a certified document is genuine. Other jurisdictions or countries will recognize your authenticated document as a valid copy. A red Global Affairs Canada stamp will be put on your document.
Authentication is also called legalization or apostille.
Sometimes official original documents (birth or marriage certificates) may need authentication too. In such cases, we staple the original document to the notarized translation and get them authenticated together.
We charge a single fee of $99 (plus taxes) for an order of up to five documents' authentication.
