Document Apostille, Authentication & Legalization Services


While trying to school, work or do business in a foreign country you might have been asked to get an apostille certificate for your documents. An apostille is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Apostille Convention of 1961, 112 countries in total.

Since Canada is not a part of the Hague Convention, document authentication and legalization are used instead of an apostille certification. What this means is that your Canadian document goes through a three-step process that allows you to present it at your preferred embassy and consulate for the purpose of legalization. See our FAQ section below for more information on the document apostille, authentication and legalization.

Frequently asked questions

The following are answers to the most common questions we get about the document apostille process in Canada.

The term apostille refers to the Hague Apostille Convention, of which Canada is not a part of. Therefore, in Canada, we use its equivalent known as authentication and legalization. Although different in name, they both serve the same purpose. That is, authenticating documents for use in foreign countries.
The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, the Apostille Convention, or the Apostille Treaty, is an international treaty drafted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It specifies the modalities through which a document issued in one of the signatory countries can be certified for legal purposes in all the other signatory states.
  1. We receive a request for a quote from you.
  2. We conduct an assessment of the requirements for your specific case during which we may contact you to receive more information about your documents.
  3. We send you a quote listing the terms and service details.
  4. Upon receipt of the payment from you we:
    - verify your documents comply with all the regulations.
    - may provide support services such as notary, certified translation, etc.
  5. Next, we personally deliver your documents to the Global Affairs Canada for authentication.
  6. Finally, we forward the authenticated documents back to you per the specified mail service or have them further processed at the embassy or consulate depending on your requirements.

Here at DAC, our document authentication and legalization services start at C$90 per document. Bulk order discounts and faster processing prices are also available.

However, all our listed prices are to be used for reference purposes only. To receive a fully accurate quote specific to your individual case, get in touch on 1-855-700-5840 or use our web form.

To have your documents ready for processing you may need to:
  • - Obtain a certified translation of your documents.
  • - Have your documents notarized.
  • - Have your documents package fully compliant with the requirements of Global Affairs Canada and your embassy for proper document legalization.

If any of the documents do not meet the proper form, miss supporting documents or otherwise fail to meet the requirements, your documents may be declined authentication and/or legalization. In this case, the processing time will take longer subject to you having to resupply the documents in full compliance.

Document Authentication Canada thoroughly checks the requirements for each specific case to make sure you don't pay double. We also deliver your documents to both Global Affairs Canada and your Embassy in Ottawa in person which greatly speeds up the process. See our service packages for further details.

Documents that cannot be authenticated include:
  • - Unknown seals or signatures which cannot be verified.
  • - Religious documents (for example baptismal certificates, religious marriage certificates, or documents issued by a religious institution).
  • - Documents that are glued, laminated or covered with any substance that would make it difficult to place a stamp on the document.
