Document authentication is done by Global Affairs Canada or the appropriate provincial authority, and document legalization is done by the Embassy of the Netherlands.

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.
