A notarized document is a document that has been certified by a Notary Public. The Notary Public is an official who verifies the identities of everybody signing the document before them, confirms the oath or attestation the signatory is making regarding the contents, witnesses the signatures, and imprints the document with a stamp (or “seal”).
Examples of Notarizations include (but are limited to):
- Affidavits for all documents required at a Public Registry within British Columbia
- Authorization of minor child travel
- Certified true copies of documents
- Execution/Authorization of International documents
- Insurance loss declarations
- Motor Vehicles (ICBC) forms
- Letters of Invitation for Foreign Travel
- Investor documents
- Attestations of Signatures
- Government Pension forms
- Proof of Identity for Travel Purposes
