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. 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 be  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:
