About the Canadian Apostille Process
The apostille process is used to certify the authenticity of a document from one country so that it will be officially recognized in another country. However, because Canada has not signed the Hague Apostille Convention we cannot issue apostilles. Instead, Canada uses an equivalent process called document authentication and legalization. If you have been told you need an apostille on your Canadian documents for use in Argentina, they will need to go through the Canadian authentication and legalization process. Document authentication and legalization is a three step process. Click below for more information on each of these three steps.

The apostille process is not available in Canada, as Canada did not sign the Hague Apostille Convention. Instead, Canada has an equivalent process that achieves the same result. The Canadian equivalent to the apostille process is called document authentication and legalization. Instead of a receiving an apostille certificate, your document will be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada and then legalized at the Consulate of Argentina.
You may handle the process on your own (by mail or in person), or you can hire a service to handle the process on your behalf. If handling the process on your own, it is critical to make sure you have accurate information on the process and how your documents should be prepared. If you make a mistake in the process, your documents will be rejected and you will most likely need to start the process again. Additionally, you should be aware that if done by mail, the process can take up to four weeks. Using an expert service to handle the process can reduce processing time and ensure you avoid the common mistakes and pitfalls that increase the length and cost of processing.

Yes, we can certainly apostille your documents at the Consulate of Argentina. The term “apostille” refers to a type of document certification that relates to the Hague Apostille Convention. Canada did not sign this convention and therefore, Canada does not issue apostille certificates. The equivalent Canadian process is called “document authentication and legalization“. So if you need to obtain an “apostille” on a Canadian document, what you will be doing is authenticating and legalizing this document.
The first step is easy – contact us! We’ll discuss your document requirements, answer your questions and clearly explain your options. You send your documents to us and we manage all aspects of the Canadian apostille process on your behalf. Contact our friendly staff so we can assess your situation and provide you with a free detailed quote.
Argentina has three consulates in Canada – one in Toronto, one in Montreal, and one in Vancouver. Each consulate has different processing times. The Consulates of Argentina offer a 5-10 day processing time, or a 2 day rush service for an added fee.
However, before the documents can be legalized by the appropriate Consulate of Argentina, they will first need to be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada. The speed of authentication at Global Affairs Canada will depend on their current processing time. If submitting documents to Global Affairs Canada by mail, you should expect to wait up to 3 weeks. When using an expert authentication and legalization service you can cut down on mailing time and ensure your documents are prepared properly the first time.
We would be happy to handle the authentication and legalization process on your behalf. Contact us to find out more about our authentication and legalization services.

The Consulates of Argentina in Canada function on a strict jurisdictional basis. This means that each diplomatic mission is responsible for legalizing documents from certain regions of Canada. There are three diplomatic missions of Argentina in Canada: 1) the Consulate General of Argentina in Toronto, 2) the Consulate General of Argentina in Montreal, 3) the Consulate General of Argentina in Vancouver. The Consulate General of Argentina in Toronto covers Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The Consulate General of Argentina in Montreal covers Quebec and the rest of the East Coast. The Consulate General of Argentina in Vancouver covers Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories and Yukon.
Aside from the need to submit documents to the correct location, the rest of the legalization process is similar between these diplomatic missions. The two main differences are:
The Consulates in Toronto and Vancouver will accept both federal authentication from Global Affairs Canada and provincial authentication from the provinces within their jurisdiction. The Consulate in Montreal will only accept documents that have been authenticated by Global Affairs Canada.
Each consulate has their own supporting document requirements. Toronto and Vancouver require an application form, whereas Montreal requires an accompanying letter and passport copy.

Document apostille certificates are issued by countries that are signatories to the Hague Apostille Convention. Because Canada has not signed the Hague Apostille Convention, we use a different but equivalent process called document authentication and legalization. The primary difference between these two processes is that an apostille certificate will be recognized by any country that has signed the Hague Apostille Convention, whereas a document that has been authenticated and legalized will only be recognized by one specific country – the country that has legalized the document.

Yes, you can check the progress of your documents, if you use the services of IDC to manage the authentication and legalization process. Within our proprietary system, we have built in a progress tracker that allows you to monitor the progress of your documents through every stage of the process. By logging in to your workform, you will be able to see which steps have been completed and what will be completed next.
In addition to the progress module that allows you to check the status of your document request, you will also be personally notified by our expert staff when your documents arrive at our office, whether we require any additional documents or information, when your documents have been completed, and finally when they have been shipped to the final destination. It is important to us that you know exactly what is happening with your important documents and when to expect them to be safely returned.

If your documents are declined while handling the process yourself by mail, you can start over and hope your documents are not rejected again, or hire an authentication and legalization service like ours to handle the process on your behalf. We will help you to prepare the documents so they will not be rejected.
If your documents are declined while we are handling the process on your behalf, we will work quickly to rectify the situation. This is a rare scenario. However, the requirements of the authentication and legalization process can change without notice. Global Affairs Canada, embassies and consulates can and do change their rules and requirements at any time, without prior notice. We will work with you to quickly meet these requirements and get your documents successfully processed.
Whether you are just starting the process, or you have documents that have been declined, we can help! Contact our expert staff to discuss your documents. Call us toll-free at 1-888-433-1011, or send us a quick online enquiry.
