Apostille Service in Canada

Mar 22, 2017

Who Does Apostille in Canada?

The Apostille Service is usually offered by a Canadian legal entity that facilitates and assists Canadians and non-Canadians with an Apostille process in Canada. The Legalization Service Centre is the Canadian legal entity that offers reliable Apostille Service in Canada. The Apostille is placed as a stamp or an additional page with certification attached to the Canadian documents so that these documents can be legally used in foreign countries. The Apostille was established in 1961 in Hague, Netherlands in order to abolish the requirements of legalization process for foreign documents.

If you need to get your documents Apostilled in Canada, please contact our office and we will explain you the steps for securely obtaining the Apostille. In Canada, the Apostille service normally requires the following two steps:

  1. Authentication of documents by the Canadian Federal Government Authority – Department of Foreign Affairs.
  2. Authentication or legalization of documents by the Embassy or Consulate in Canada.

We cover both steps so you do not need to worry much about it.

What Documents Require the Apostille Service?

Usually, all Canadian documents require Apostille if they are intended to be used outside of Canada. The documents such as birth, marriage, divorce or death certificates, educational documents, criminal record checks (police clearance) or fingerprint certificates, powers of attorney, deeds, corporate documents and many more.

We have vast experience in document services in Canada so you can be assured that everything we receive from you will be properly and safely handled and processed in accordance with the international laws and regulations. Beside Apostille, we offer notary services, translation services, international shipment services and visa services.
