About the Authentication and Legalization Process
Document authentication and legalization is a three step process – click below for more information on each step. Your Manufacturer’s Declaration will need to first be certified by your local CFIA office. Authentication then happens at Global Affairs. The final step of legalization is done by the relevant embassy or diplomatic mission. Note that in Canada the terms “apostille” and “attestation” are also used to refer to the authentication and legalization process.
