What is Notarization?

Notarization is a general term to describe the act of a Canadian notary public adding their signature and seal to a document. In a broader definition, document notarization involves having a notary public witness your signature on a document, and then certify that this signature is authentic. In addition to notary publics, many lawyers are certified to notarize documents, and in some provinces, notarization can be done by commissioners of oaths, both of which are provided by Axess Law. The professional who is notarizing your document will stamp and sign your document, certifying that they witnessed the signature to issue you a true copy.
