What is Apostille?
The Apostille in Canada is a confirmation that the documents have been obtained legally and therefore can be recognized by the countries that are signatories of the Hague Apostille Convention. Since Canada is not a member of this convention, all Canadian documents must undergo the authentication and legalization services that replace the Apostille process in Canada.
When you need to use these Canadian documents in countries that require Apostille, you’ll be asked to present them with an Apostille stamp. The stamp is required whenever such pieces of information cross borders, in order to validate their legitimacy.
The Apostille in Canada process would require the documents to be stamped by the Canadian federal government which is a Global Affairs Canada Authentication Sector. The facility in question is located in Ottawa, and it can take up to 20 business days for them to process your request. Exceptions include if you appear in-person at their office.
