Frequently asked questions

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

Technically speaking, all the terms refer to the same concept - verifying documents. They're known under different names in different countries. An apostille is used when you need to submit documents in countries that are a member of the Hague Convention of 1961. Since Canada is not a part of the convention, it utilizes the process of authentication and legalization to verify documents. Such documents are accepted only in countries they are specifically authenticated/legalized for.

Document attestation is the term used for the process of document authentication and legalization in some countries outside of Canada. If you need to attest your Canadian documents you will actually be authenticating and legalizing them.
