My experience with IDOCS Canada has been 100% positive! The people with whom I dealt were both very informative and extremely patient. They helped me through the entire process and provided guidance in the areas in which I was unfamiliar. They stayed in close contact with me, and provided daily updates on the progress of my time sensitive paperwork. I was pleasantly surprised when once all my papers had arrived for attestation, they were processed the very same day! I would not hesitate to use IDOCS Canada again, and I recommend it without hesitation.

DOCUMENT ATTESTATION AT THE HIGH COMMISSION OF INDIA
Frequently Asked Questions
Before your Canadian documents will be officially recognized in India, they will need to go through a specific process known as attestation. The term attestation is used by some foreign countries to describe a process that verifies the signatures and authenticity of documents. In Canada, this process is also called document authentication and legalization.
To attest documents with the High Commission of India, you will first need to have the documents authenticated with Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa. Once your documents have been authenticated, they can be submitted to the High Commission of India, along with required supporting documents. In addition to the original authenticated documents, the High Commission of India requires that you also submit an application form, a photocopy of your passport, and a photocopy of the authenticated documents. Some documents will require additional supporting documents as well.
Please note that the High Commission of India only accepts documents that originate from the National Capital Region and Montreal. Additionally, the applicant must also reside in the National Capital Region or Montreal. Otherwise, the documents will fall under the jurisdiction of one of the Consulates General of India located in Canada.
If you are unsure how to proceed, or you cannot wait many weeks for the process to be done by mail, feel free to contact us for assistance. We will work with you to ensure your documents are prepared correctly, and then manage all aspects of the attestation process for you.

The High Commission of India typically provides 1 day service (by appointment only) to attest documents, assuming that the documents have been prepared correctly. However, if necessary supporting documents have not been submitted, the attestation of your documents will be refused.
Before the documents are submitted to the High Commission of India, you will need to have them authenticated by Global Affairs Canada. The processing time for authentication at Global Affairs Canada is up to 15 business days.

The diplomatic missions of India in Canada function on a strict jurisdictional basis. This means that each diplomatic mission is responsible for legalizing documents from certain regions of Canada. This includes the origins of the document and the permanent address of the applicant.
There are three diplomatic missions of India in Canada:
The High Commission of India in Ottawa (click here for our web page)
The Consulate General of India in Toronto
The Consulate General of India in Vancouver
The High Commission of India in Ottawa covers the Ottawa/Gatineau region and Montreal. The Consulate General of India in Toronto covers the rest of Ontario, the rest of Quebec, Manitoba, and all East Coast provinces. The Consulate General of India in Vancouver covers Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, and Yukon.
Aside from the need to submit documents to the correct location, the rest of the attestation process remains similar between these diplomatic missions.
