Who Does Apostille in Canada?
The Apostille Service is usually offered by a Canadian legal entity that facilitates and assists Canadians and non-Canadians with an Apostille process in Canada. The Legalization Service Centre is the Canadian legal entity that offers reliable Apostille Service in Canada. The Apostille is placed as a stamp or an additional page with certification attached to the Canadian documents so that these documents can be legally used in foreign countries. The Apostille was established in 1961 in Hague, Netherlands in order to abolish the requirements of legalization process for foreign documents.
