About the Canadian Attestation Process

The term “attestation” is commonly used by countries in the Middle East, and is often associated with educational documents. Attestation is the process used to have a foreign document officially recognized in that country. For example, if you accept a job teaching English in the UAE you will be asked to provide your educational diploma, and will be required to have this diploma attested first.

In Canada the document attestation process is officially called document authentication and legalization.  This  means that if you have been told that you need to attest your Canadian documents you will actually be authenticating and legalizing these documents.
