      IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS

      • All notarization services are provided by an Ontario Licensed Lawyer / Notary Public / Commissioner for Oaths, depending on availability. Please note: We exclusively offer virtual notary and commissioning services, and in-person appointments are currently not available. We do not provide legal advice during these service appointments.
      • Our fees are determined by the number of notary signatures/stamps and not by the number of documents. Fees for notarization begin at $34.95, plus any applicable taxes. Additionally, for documents that require extended time, involve complex requirements, or necessitate extensive review or processing, an adjusted fee may apply. Additional fees apply for copies: $1.00 per page for black and white, $2.00 per page for color.
      • If more than one person has to sign the same page of a document, each signature needs to be notarized separately. In Ontario, each signature on a family gift vehicle transfer needs to be commissioned individually. This is because the fact of having two signatures on a document is not sufficient to prove that both signatures have been lawfully commissioned. Each signature would be treated as a distinct act that requires authentication by the commissioner. This process helps to authenticate each individual’s signature independently and ensure the legal validity of the document.
      • Our fees consider the additional time, expertise, and resources involved in ensuring the accuracy and completeness of notarizations. We believe in transparent pricing and will communicate any applicable additional fees to clients in advance. A complete quote is provided prior to the commencement of services.
      • Please note that copies or scans of your identification and any documents notarized may be retained to comply with our established office policies and procedures.
      • We accept various payment methods, including Debit Visa, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover credit cards, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and Apple Pay.

      CLIENT CHECKLIST

      1. Identity Card (ID) Policy – Upload ONE government issued photo identification (examples: Canadian driver’s licence, Canadian provincial / territorial government issued identity card, Canadian permanent resident card, Passport). Any nationality is OK. Note: Your ID must be a legible image of your physical ID (both front and back of it). If your primary identity document does not include your signature, you will be required to provide an additional original and valid government-issued photo identification that includes your signature. Please be informed that we retain the right to verify the authenticity of the identification document presented to us. The name on your government-issued photo ID must match the name on your document you are using, and the signature on both the ID and the document must match. This is particularly important in cases where you have two last names.
      2. Valid Identification for Online Meeting: During the meeting, you shall present an original government- issued photo ID (identification card) for review that is not expired and is valid for use. Failure to physically present a valid photo ID card during the online appointment will result in the cancellation of the appointment. All signatories must appear in video before the Notary to complete the signing process. A screenshot of the signatory with their photo ID will be captured during the meeting.
      3. Do not sign in advance: You agree NOT to sign your document before your online appointment. It is essential to sign the document in the presence of the Notary Public / Commissioner for Oaths.
      4. Client Responsibility for Electronically Commissioned Documents: You are solely responsible for ensuring that electronically signed and commissioned documents are acceptable to the relevant authority and within the jurisdiction where the document(s) are being presented.
      5. In-Person Notarization Requirement for Certain Documents: Documents that require notarization cannot be done virtually (e.g. notarized copies of ID such as Driver’s Licence, Passports, Diplomas) as the notary must emboss the document with the notarial seal, a process that is done in the presence of the notary. For such documents, visit a notary in-person. We currently do not provide in-person notary service.
      6. Accuracy: You agree that you are 100% responsible of making sure your document is accurate, complete and truthful. You understand that we cannot help, advise or guide you to complete or fill out document(s), under any circumstances.
      7. Witnesses: If your document requires a witness, both yourself and the witness must present an original and valid government issued photo identification which matches the name on the document. It is your responsibility to make sure witnesses are present during the notarization process. Please note that the notary can act as the first witness on some document signings. If your document requires two witnesses, you must arrange for the second witness to attend the online meeting.
      8. Printer and Scanner Access: You may need access to a printer and a scanner for the completion of the commissioning process.
      9. Service Hours and Appointment Booking Information: Our service hours are Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (EST).
