Our Simple Three Step Process
What is an Apostille?
An “apostille” is the term used to describe the process of having a document certified so it will be accepted in a foreign jurisdiction. After a document has been apostilled, it will be recognized in every country that has signed the Hague Apostille Convention. However, Canada is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, and therefore it is not possible to obtain a Canadian apostille.
The Canadian equivalent to the international apostille process is called document authentication and legalization. If you have been told that you need to obtain a Canadian apostille, what you will actually be doing is authenticating and legalizing your document.

What our clients are saying…
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.

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.
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. All our problems and notes which we addressed to you were well taken care of. We will be certainly using IDC services in future ourselves, as well as recommend your company to our friends.
