How is my document notarized?

Author: Mock Webware |

  • A Canadian notary signs and seals your document. The notary can also prepare a separate certificate (sign it and attach it to your document).
  • When signing your document, the notary must:
    • have a valid certificate of appointment
    • handwrite their signature in ink
    • apply a stamp or seal showing their full name as it appears on their certificate of appointment and the Canadian province or territory in which they have been appointed
    • indicate the act they performed (e.g. certifying a true copy)
    • indicate the date on which they notarized the document
    • indicate the date on which their appointment as a notary expires (if applicable)
