When exporting products from Canada you may be asked to have certain commercial documents, such as a Certificate of Insurance, authenticated and legalized, also referred to as apostille.
The authentication and legalization process enables a Canadian document to be used in another country. For more information on the process, take a look at this helpful article – What is authentication and legalization?
At International Documents Canada we work with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD) and over 200 diplomatic missions on a regular basis to process commercial documents and therefore we keep track of each diplomatic mission’s very specific requirements for the authentication and legalization of Canadian documents.
For example, in order to have your commercial documents authenticated by Foreign Affairs they will need to be notarized by a Canadian Notary Public. If you submit your commercial documents by mail, they will take at least 15 business days to be processed.
To avoid the delays and stress involved with attempting to manage the process yourself, contact us to discuss your particular requirements and ensure your documents are prepared correctly. We will rapidly authenticate and legalize your commercial documents, often in as little as a couple days.
For further information or to discuss the authentication and legalization of your Certificate of Insurance, you may contact an expert at International Documents Canada (IDC).
