NOTARIZATION AND CERTIFIED TRUE COPIES
When a document is notarized, it means that a notary public has verified the identify of the signor before he/she signs the document. The notary public will also verify that the signor understands what he/she is signing and is doing so voluntarily.
There are many documents that require notarization, including but not limited to:
travel consent letter for minor children
letter of invitation to visit Canada
name change applications
insurance loss declarations
Documents that are to be used outside of the province of British Columbia may need to go through a process called authentication by the Society of Notaries Public and the Ministry of Justice and legalization by the relevant consulate.
In order for us to verify your identity, we wold need to examine two pieces of ID from you, one of which must be a government issued ID. Usually, passport, driver's licence, services card, permanent residence card are preferred. If you are unsure as to what IDs to bring along, please give us a call before visiting our office.
