Apostille Process in Canada

Mar 10, 2017

Apostille is a confirmation that the signature of the authorized officer on the document is genuine and legal. The Apostille is usually stamped on government issued documents as well as on documents that have been certified by the notaries. Once the Apostille was applied, the document can be now legally and officially used in foreign countries that are signatories of the Apostille Convention.

The following documents are typically required to get apostilled on them if they are intended to be used abroad: Birth, marriage, divorce or death certificates, diplomas, degrees, transcripts, Criminal record background check (police clearance) or fingerprint certificates, notarized corporate documents, powers of attorney, deeds and so on.
