I am very happy with the service your company has provided. I found this service invaluable as my impending foreign service assignment has been delayed several times due to paperwork issues and the legalization of my marriage certificate had the makings of another long bureaucratic delay if not for your expedited service.

About the Document Legalization Process

The document legalization process is used to certify documents from one country so that they can be officially recognized in another country. In order to have your Canadian documents recognized in China, you will likely need to first have these documents legalized by the Embassy of China in Ottawa. It is important to note that document legalization is the third step in a three step process. Before you can legalize your documents they first need to be prepared for processing, and then authenticated at Global Affairs Canada. Click below for more information on each of these three steps.
