When you travel, work, invest, or do business in the other countries, dealing with documentation can be a tricky process. To make your Canadian documents valid for use abroad, they must go through a special process called 'authentication and legalization'. This process is often referred to as Apostille certification. In Canada, getting your document authenticated and legalized is the legal equivalent of getting an Apostille. The entire process centers on signature and document verification. Because each country, and each different type of document, has specific consular requirements, the process often gets complicated and frustrating.
Brosgall Legal | Notary Services specializes in this process, and we would be pleased to assist. While getting an authentication and legalization done in Canada can be very complex, we've simplified the process for our clients. All we need is your original documentation, and we take it from there. We send regular updates, and 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 .
