How to Legalize International Documents in Vancouver, BC

Brosgall Legal specializes in authenticating and legalizing documents (Apostille) for international use. As Vancouver's leading document legalization company, we understand consular procedure, and we partner with many local consulates and embassies across Canada. To ensure the highest level of service, our law firm is also one of the few firms that is pre-registered with the BC Law Society, the BC Ministry of Justice, and Canada's Foreign Affairs in Ottawa. Please contact us to process your international documentation. We are fast, reliable, and local; and we guarantee your document will be legal and valid overseas.

As Canada has never ratified the 1961 Hague Apostille Convention, apostilles are not available in Canada. Instead, Canadians must validate international documents through diplomatic channels. This is done in three steps: notarization, authentication, and legalization. As Vancouver's leading Apostille & consular legalization firm, Brosgall Legal provides convenient one-stop service for all three steps. All we need is your original documentation, and we take it from there. We provide you with the fully authenticated and legalized documents at the end. For further information or to discuss getting your documents authenticated and legalized with Brosgall Legal, please send us an email or call us at 604-685-ADAM [2326].

Typical Documents Requiring Legalization

Here are some of the most common types of documents that require an Apostille (authentication and legalization):

  • international powers of attorney and property transfers
  • identification, passport, visa and citizenship papers
  • birth certificates for destination weddings
  • death, wills and probate documents
  • notarizations and acknowledgments
  • corporate records, commercial documents and letters of intent
  • police record check and clearance certificates
  • diplomas, degrees and academic transcripts
  • certified true copies and notarizations of other important documents

Brosgall Legal specializes in providing authentication and legalization services for all of these types of documents. We have years of experience working with Canadian government authorities (Authentication step), and foreign consulates and embassies in Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa (Legalization step). We navigate the complex and bureaucratic authentication and legalization process on your behalf, and we guarantee that your documents will be legal and valid for use overseas.
