What is Legalization of Documents in Canada

The legalization of documents in Canada or superlegalization of documents or attestation of documents is a process when the Canadian documents get validated in Canada for their legal use in foreign countries. The legalization of documents are normally performed by the Embassies and Consulates of those countries where the Canadian documents are intended to be used in. For example: if you need to authorize someone in UAE to take care of your property there on your behalf, the power of attorney must be legalized by the UAE embassy in Canada. Without this step, your Canadian power of attorney has no legal effect in UAE. So this applies to all Canadian documents to be used in any foreign countries.

Authentication of Documents in Canada

Before the document legalization process at foreign Embassies and Consulates in Canada, the Canadian documents must be properly authenticated by the Canadian Government Agency.  In Canada, it would be the Global Affairs Canada that can authenticate all documents originated from all Canadian provinces. However, there are some restrictions and requirements to the documents to be authenticated. Please contact our office to verify if your document is acceptable for document authentication and legalization process in Canada.

We Can Help

The document legalization process at Embassies and Consulates in Canada can be confusing as there are many requirements set by the foreign governments. For example: if you need your Canadian degree legalized for use in Qatar, you will have to also legalize the official transcripts and the graduation confirmation letter from the University. Moreover, the university must send the official transcripts and true copy certificate form directly to Qatari Embassy in Ottawa in order for the Embassy to successfully legalize your Canadian documents.

So, the legalization of documents at the foreign embassies and consulates in Canada is not necessarily straightforward process and you might want to contact our office to receive the assistance and a guidance during this legalization process.
