What is Authentication of Documents?
The authentication of documents in Canada is a process that confirms the validity of the signatures on documents, made possible by experienced and authorized authentication officers. This is always required when such documents are intended for use in foreign countries, and for various purposes. The authentication of documents is usually time-consuming as there are certain established governmental requirements that must be adhered to, and the same applies to laws and regulations set out by foreign consulates.
The Legalization Service Centre offers fast, efficient and secure document authentication and legalization services in Canada. Our team of knowledgeable and experienced professionals ensure that your documents have been properly authenticated and legalized in accordance with even the strictest international laws and regulations, enabling for their validation and use outside of Canada.
Normally, the authentication of documents process requires the following:
- Authentication of documents performed in an official capacity by the Canadian government via the Global Affairs Canada or other authorized government agencies.
- Legalization of documents by embassies and/or consulates within Canada.
How We Can Help

We help authenticate all types of documents from all Canadian provinces. However, bear in mind that there are restrictions in place as to what documents can be legally authenticated.
