What can my notary do?

Author: Mock Webware |

  • In signing your document, the notary may, for example:
    • witness a signature
    • receive a declaration or affidavit
    • certify that a document is a true copy of the original
    • Translated documents
  • A Canadian notary may also be able to certify a translation to be true if they speak both languages. If that is the case, ensure that the notary indicates on the document both of the following:
    • They attest to speaking both languages
    • They certify the accuracy of the translation
  • If you are looking for more information please go to Government of Canada or to Guide for Newly Appointed Commissioners for Taking Affidavits.
