Authenticating & Legalizing a Canadian Death Certificate

When providing a Canadian death certificate to an authority in a foreign country it is often necessary to first have the certificate authenticated and legalized. Document authentication and legalization, also known as the “apostille” or “attestation” process, is used when you need to have Canadian documents officially recognized outside of Canada. We can assist you with the authentication and legalization process, ensuring that the death certificate is processed quickly and returned to you safely. Contact us for more information!
