The Authentication of Documents in Canada. Fast and Easy Process!


Authentication of Documents

What is Authentication of Documents

The authentication of documents in Canada is a process that confirms authenticity of the signatures on Canadian documents by the authorized authentication officers. The authentication of documents is always required when the Canadian documents are intended to be used in foreign countries for various purposes. The authentication of documents is usually time consuming, as there are certain requirements set by governments and foreign consulates for completing this process in Canada.

The Legalization Service Centre offers the fast and reliable Document Authentication and Legalization Service in Canada. We make sure that the documents have been properly authenticated and legalized in accordance with international laws and regulations so that they can be legally used outside of Canada.

Normally, the authentication of documents process in Canada requires completing of the two steps:

  1. Authentication of Documents by the Canadian Government – Global Affairs Canada Authentication Sector located in Ottawa, Ontario;
  2. Legalization of Documents by the Embassies and Consulates in Canada.

The Global Affairs Canada Authentication Sector authenticates all types of documents from all Canadian provinces. However, there are some restrictions exist as to what documents they can accept for authentication service. For example, the Global Affairs Canada Authentication Sector does not accept for document authentication service the religious documents and other documents that have been issued by unrecognized private institutions in Canada. If you are not sure whether your document can be accepted by the Global Affairs Canada please contact us and we will assist you with this process.

The authentication service by the Global Affairs Canada takes up to 20 business days to complete unless you come in person to their office in Ottawa, ON and get the documents authenticated at the spot. We can authenticate your documents within 1 business day after we receive them from you, thanks to our close location to the Global Affairs Canada.

The Legalization Service Centre has over 5 years successful experience in document authentication and legalization services in Canada and has many happy customers not only in Canada but also around the world. We know all aspects of the Global Affairs Canada authentication sector’s and of foreign embassies in Canada requirements as we have authenticated and legalized hundreds of Canadian documents to be used outside of Canada.
