Authentication of Documents-Important Information

The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD), formerly Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) authenticates only Canadian signature(s) on Documents. They do not review or approve contents of a document.

The DFATD does not authenticate religious documents (such as baptismal certificates, religious marriage certificate, documents issued by religious institutions), even if they are certified, signed and sealed by a Canadian Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths.

The DFATD can authenticate photocopies of documents. The photocopies must be clear, certified true copies attested and sealed by a Canadian Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths.

An original document, in a foreign language, must be translated by a certified translator to English or French. The translation must be signed and sealed by a Canadian Notary or Commissioner of Oaths, and sent along with original document for authentication. Both the original document and the translation must be signed and sealed by a Canadian Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths.

Certificates of Birth, Marriage or Death

The DFATD authenticates only long-form birth, marriage or death certificates, issued by the office of Vital Statistics of the relevant province or territory. The DFAIT does not authenticate plastic, wallet-size version of birth, marriage or death certificates.

Marriage search documents, issued by the Province of Ontario must be notarized.

 

Education Documents

The DFATD only authenticates student transcripts or degrees issued by a Canadian Educational Institution (recognized by the provincial/territorial ministry or education).
