Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about Notary Public:
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NOTARY PUBLIC AND A COMMISSIONER FOR OATHS?
Most documents that are remaining in Alberta can be signed by a commissioner for oaths, but documents that are leaving Alberta must be notarized. Other documents, such as certified copies, must also be notarized.
QUESTION: WHAT IS A STATUTORY DECLARATION?
A statutory declaration is a written statement of facts which you as the "declarant" solemnly states to be true. A statutory declaration is not sworn; rather it is affirmed or declared to be true and can be witnessed by a Notary.
QUESTION: WHAT IS AUTHENTICATION/ LEGALIZATION OF DOCUMENTS?
Even if you have had your documents attested before a Notary Public in Alberta they are not usually acceptable in other countries without a Certificate of Authentication. An official of the Deputy Provincial Secretary's Office signs the certificate authenticating the appointment, the signature and the seal of the Notary Public. A Certificate of Authentication may only be issued by the Deputy Provincial Secretary's Office, who holds the official records of Notaries Public of the Province of Alberta, including records of their signatures and seals.
Once this process is completed they will normally meet the requirements of the receiving country.
