Please have your identification ready

Any person that is signing the document must be present and provide their government-issued identification that includes a photo and signature (i.e., a driver's licence). Please ensure your document is complete and do not sign until you're in the presence of a Commissioner.

Virtual appointments

You can request a virtual appointment and after reviewing, we will respond to set up an appointment during regular business hours. You must have a webcam for all virtual appointments. Before you start, make sure that the end party asking for the document will accept a virtual copy.

Once the appointment is booked, follow these easy steps:

  1. Open the Zoom link we provided to meet with the Commissioner
  2. Hold up the unsigned document and your photo ID (with your signature) for the Commissioner to verify
  3. Commissioner administers oath or declaration
  4. Sign and hold up the document with your signature and ID for the Commissioner to verify
  5. Email the Commissioner the signed document

After reviewing, the Commissioner will email it back to you, stamped and signed.

Please note

A Commissioner does not certify that the statements made in the affidavit or statutory declaration are true. They only certify that an oath or solemn affirmation has been administered properly. If your document needs a signature of a notary, or if you need certified document copies, you will need to contact a lawyer or a notary.
