Document Authentication, legalization, and Notarizing Services
If you run an international business, you’re probably well-accustomed to the importance of document authentication. Canadian documents—both personal and corporate—require authentication and legalization in order to be officially recognized in other countries.
As the first step of the validation process, document authentication guarantees the validity of the seal and signature of an official document. This process is followed by legalization to ensure a document is officially valid for international use. Depending on your destination country, you may have to get your document notarized prior to authentication.
At Global Legalization Services, we understand how challenging and time-consuming these key processes can be. Owing to the complexity of document authentication, people tend to consult third-party agencies that have minimal understanding of the required procedures. Not only does this prolong the authentication process, but it also costs more. In some cases, the documents aren’t adequately authenticated by the appropriate authorities in Canada and the destination country.
At Global Legalization Services, we have extensive experience in offering expert document authentication services. Our team assiduously works with each client to ensure systematic and timely document authentication.
Over the years, we’ve authenticated a wide range of documents for high-profile corporations and law firms, including (but not limited to):
- Power of Attorney
- Birth Certificates
- Marriage Certificates
- Adoption Certificates
- Divorce Certificates
- Certificates of Merger
- Agent Authorization Letters
- School Admission Papers and Transcripts
- Court Documents
- International Trade Certificates

Depending on the document and destination country, there may be a specific set of requirements for authentication. We’ll take care of all the particularities and contact Global Affairs Canada to begin the process. Our team will send you timely updates so you can conveniently track each stage of the process.
At Global Legalization Services, we have strict operational procedures in place to ensure optimal security. We personally contact Global Affairs Canada to guarantee document protection and facilitate the process.
Please note that Global Affairs Canada doesn’t authenticate digitally scanned or photocopied documents. It’s important that you send us the original document to ensure hassle-free authentication. In addition, documents must be translated prior to authentication and legalization. If you possess documents in a foreign language, you must acquire a notarized translation.
