In some situations, photocopies of official documents must be obtained and used. Our Public Notaries can photocopy the document and certify it as being a true and genuine copy of the original. This is done by including signatures, a seal, and a statement. Documents that often require certifications include, but are not limited to: university and college degrees, passports, birth/marriage certificates, and other personal papers. Follows are descriptions of a sample of our services.
Educational Degrees & Educational Documents
Authenticating and certifying educational degrees and documents, such as transcripts, is a process that is crucial for verifying degrees and eligibility in certain circumstances. The process requires that identity is verified, that original documents are verified and that true copies are made, verified and authenticated through our notarization process.
Birth / Marriage Certificates
For a variety of reasons a birth or a marriage certificate must be notarized. To do so, an original birth or marriage certificate must be provided. In the case that these require translation, an authentic translation must be provided, the translated copy must be verified and authenticated, and then notarization can be conducted.
Signature Authentication is required when the client wishes for the document to be valid in a different country. In order to authenticate a signature, the Ontario Government requires that a Notary Public certifies the signature to be valid and authentic with a seal and signature . The organization that requested the notarized document would be able to confirm whether or not you need a signature authentication.
