Communication was prompt and clear, and service exceeded expectations. I discovered only a month before my wedding in Portugal that one of my Canadian documents lacked necessary processing that would, under regular circumstances, take at least a month to complete. Heather and Evey made a potentially stressful experience easy and worry-free, processing and returning my document to Portugal two days after having received it. This is an excellent option for those needing expedited processing.

About the Canadian Apostille Process

The Canadian apostille process is used to certify the authenticity of a Canadian document so that this document will be officially recognized in another country. It is important to note that although the term “apostille” is used frequently in our country, Canada cannot issue an actual apostille (click for more info on why). Instead, we use an equivalent process called document authentication and legalization. So if you have been told that you need to get an apostille on a Canadian document, what you will doing is authenticating and legalizing your document.

The Canadian apostille process (document authentication and legalization) consists of three steps. Click on the icons below for more information on each step:
