What Our Clients Are Saying
I truly appreciated not only the quality of the services rendered but the great patience you had in walking me through the process. I have already circulated the name of IDC with all the paralegals of the firm and all the corporate commercial attorneys. Rest assured that any future need for an appostille will be directed to your firm.
Jacques Bourque, Degrandpre Chait LLP
Thank you all for your assistance and professionalism. I can’t say enough about the service we received. I will not hesitate to utilize your firm again in the future or to recommend your firm to my colleagues.
May M., Boughton Law, Vancouver
From the first contact until I received my documents everything was clear and efficient and the customer service was superb. Due to a tight timeline I was not at all convinced that I would be able to get all my documents processed on time but everything was done for me as quickly as possible. I would recommend this service to anyone who is needing to get documents processed for a move overseas and I wouldn't hesitate to use this service again in the future. A big thank you for helping me in an extremely stressful and busy time.
Communication was prompt and clear, and service exceeded expectations. I discovered only a month before my wedding in Portugal that one of my Canadian documents lacked necessary processing that would, under regular circumstances, take at least a month to complete. Heather and Evey made a potentially stressful experience easy and worry-free, processing and returning my document to Portugal two days after having received it. This is an excellent option for those needing expedited processing.
Sara T., Portugal
This experience with IDOCS has been very good. Heather was wonderful and understood my need for quick action and I know you have been behind many of the communications. I would certainly refer anyone to use your services – highly recommended! And, your website, and completing payment details was as smooth as could be expected. You guys get full marks all the way!!! Thanks again, and I will keep your information for colleagues, etc.
Dr. Michael Powell, University of Alberta
My experience with you guys has been terrific. A thoroughly proficient and trusted team delivering a super efficient and impeccable service. It's been outstanding on all fronts especially in the communication department. A personal touch to the whole process was like icing on the cake. I would not hesitate to seek your help in future and recommend the services your firm to my colleagues and friends.
Dr. Qutube, Saudi Arabia
Thank you for your service. We look forward to receiving our documents. Your service has been outstanding and we will gladly recommend you to others. To be honest, you have taken care of everything so well for us that it has been very stress free so far. We will definitely be using you again on our next move.
We would like to thank all of you for your prompt service and kind support. The authentication and legalization of the document has been performed properly and without delays.

David & Victoria - Moscow, Russia
My interaction with IDC was fantastic. I loved everything about the service; you guys were prompt, kind, professional, considerate and always available when ever I had a question. I got my authentications and certifications done at a twinkle of an eye. I will recommend IDC any time, any day. Further more, I wanna thank the entire team for a job well done and special hats-off to Heather Ryerse for her professionalism and attentiveness. Thank y'all so very much.
