Letter of Invitation

Notarized Letter of Invitation By Notary Public North York, Toronto, Canada

A letter of invitation is one where a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident of Canada ‘invites’ a person living outside Canada, to visit Canada. Accordingly, a letter of invitation is instrumental to the application for a Temporary Resident Visa required by a person wishing to enter Canada. In such cases, some visa offices may require that the letter of invitation be notarized by a notary public.

The letter of invitation must include particular information about both the person inviting another person to Canada and the person being invited.

Once you have prepared the letter of invitation and have had it notarized, you need to send it to the person you are inviting to Canada. They will then have to present this letter of invitation to the Canadian Embassy or Consulate in their respective country, at the time they apply for their Temporary Resident Visa.

Note:

  • Almost always, visa offices require that letters of invitation be notarized. However, it must be noted that a letter of invitation does not guarantee that a visa will be issued. Notwithstanding, a letter of invitation does increase the visitor’s chances of being issued a visitor’s visa to Canada. Although in issuing a visitor’s visa to Canada, eligibility of the applicant is assessed by visa officials, some weight is given to the letter of invitation.

Consent to Travel Documents

Consent to Travel Documents in Toronto, Canada  – Travel Consent Letter for Minors

Do you need a travel permission letter for a minor in Canada?

If an individual is below 18 years of age and wants to travel across international borders alone or with only one parent or another adult, then the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) strongly recommends that they have their parents’ consent for each and every such trip abroad. A notarized letter of consent to travel is proof of such consent.

A simple letter or consent form that has not been notarized by a licensed notary public may be rejected by border officials due to the fact that such letters or forms can be easily forged. In order that the validity of the letter be unquestionable, the DFAIT recommends that the consent letter be certified, stamped and sealed by an official who has the authority to administer an oath or solemn declaration (i.e. a commissioner for oaths, notary public, lawyer, etc.). A notary public at Notarizers can notarize this consent document for you.

This consent letter may be necessitated by foreign authorities among other additional country-specific entry requirements. Granting permission to enter another country is the sole prerogative of that country. Hence, you should contact the representatives of the country or countries to be visited by the child, to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information regarding their specific entry requirements.

It is also strongly recommended that you contact the transportation company including airline, train, bus, and others, in order to observe any additional policies that they might have in place.

Instances under which you should consider having a notarized consent to travel document:

  • If a minor is traveling with only one parent, the absent parent is expected to provide notarized consent.
  • If a minor is traveling alone or is accompanied by an adult other than a parent then either both parents or the sole documented custodial parent must provide notarized consent.
  • If a minor child has only one parent as evidenced by its birth certificate, a notarized copy of the birth certificate or the original will be sufficient proof allowing the child to travel with the named parent.

 

Note:

  • Other documents may be required in addition to notarized consent documents. Visit the DFAIT’s website before you travel, to ensure that you have all of your necessary documentation.
  • The parent(s) granting consent must attend the notary public’s office with valid photo identification. Hence, ensure you come with your valid photo identification when you come to Notarizers for this and other notarization services.

 

Child Travel Consent Form

Kindly complete and submit the following information form. A staff member of Notarizers will contact you to schedule an appointment, once the consent to travel document has been prepared.

Please do not sign any documents required to be notarized or commissioned until you have arrived at our offices, as we need to see you sign the document in person as required by law.

Certified Copy of Document

A notarized copy means a photocopy of an original document that has been certified by a notary public to be an authentic copy of the original document. A notarized copy is sometimes referred to as a certified copy.

A notary public examines the original document that is being certified/notarized and compares the original to the photocopy. The notary public must be satisfied that the photocopy is an authentic copy of the original. If satisfied, the notary public will print a statement on the photocopy, which certifies the photocopy to be a true and an accurate copy of the original document that was presented. The notary public signs the document and embosses a notary public’s seal on the document. The notary public’s signature and seal can later be authenticated by the government for use in a jurisdiction outside Canada.

The certified document acts as an assurance that the photocopy is a true and an accurate copy of the original. It is useful where it is necessary to obtain and use copies of a document rather than use the actual document itself.

We can photocopy the document and certify it as being a true copy of the original, by affixing a signature, seal and statement to that effect on the copy. As a result, the authenticity of the copied document is assured to persons to whom the photocopy of said document is later presented.

Note:

  • An original document is a document that is not a copy of a document. A notary public can only certify/notarize copies of original documents and not copies of copies.

Commission of Oaths (Commissioner of Oaths)

Commission of Oaths/Commissioner of Oaths in North York, Toronto, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Brampton, Mississaugua, Vaughan, Canada

 

Persons who are authorized under regional or provincial legislation to administer and witness the swearing of oaths or solemn affirmations in order to take an affidavit for any potential legal matter are called “commissioners of oaths”. The person who makes an oath as an affirmation or declaration is called a “deponent” or “declarant”.

Commissioners of oaths in Canada are also certified to witness any declaration as required under a given law. A commissioner of oaths officially states that the required oath or affirmation or declaration has been properly administered. A commissioner does not verify the validity of the statements contained in a document. This is the responsibility of the deponents.

In nearly all Canadian provinces, a commissioner of oaths must administer the declaration by law. This requires that the deponent be physically present before the commissioner of oaths.

Before signing the document, the commissioner of oaths must be satisfied about the authenticity of the deponent’s identity and signature by comparing it to that in existence on a piece of identification, such as a driver’s license or a provincial health insurance card or passport.

Different Types of Oaths:

If an oath is witnessed by a commissioner of oaths then it is necessary for the deponent to confirm the following question: “Do you guarantee that the contents of this affidavit as subscribed by you are true?”

If such a type of oath is not required, then the deponent can confirm by responding ‘yes’ to: “Do you solemnly confirm and declare that the contents of this affidavit as subscribed by you are true?”.

In consistence with the requirement of a solemn declaration, the deponent must declare in the positive to: “Do you make this solemn declaration conscientiously, considering it to be true and knowing that it is of the same force and effect as if made under oath?”.

In all instances, it is required that the deponent be physically present before the commissioner of oaths.

Typical Commission Of Oaths Services Include:

  • Certified / Notarized Copies
  • Commissioning of Oaths/Solemn Declarations
  • Witnessing of Signatures
  • Statutory Declaration of Common Law Union
  • Statutory Declaration Concerning a Lost, Stolen, Damaged, Destroyed or Inaccessible Canadian Passport or Travel Document

Statutory Declarations

Statutory Declaration For Confirming Identity/ Property in North York, Toronto, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.

A statutory declaration is a summary of facts that are in a written form. The declarant has solemnly proclaimed the facts to be true prior to signing the documented summary.

A statutory declaration is either sworn or an affirmation of truth and must be witnessed by a justice of the peace, a lawyer, attorney, solicitor, or notary public such as Notarizers.

Difference Between An Affidavit And a Statutory Declaration

Although very similar to an affidavit, a statutory declaration is different from an affidavit because it is normally drafted for reasons other than court proceedings. It is a solemn declaration used to assert the truth of any fact or of any account rendered in writing. However, in both cases, statutory declaration and affidavits, the statements or declarations carry the same weight. Therefore, the effect under oath has the same value as evidence given in a court of law.

Some common statutory declarations are:

  • Statutory declarations confirming identity
  • Statutory declarations confirming a document has been lost or stolen
  • Statutory declarations regarding the ownership of property

 

We at Notarizers can provide you full professional services with regard to statutory declaration for confirming identity in Ontario.

Set up an appointment and to get and know more about our statutory declaration services in Canada, by simply filling out the inquiry form from our website’s home page or email us at info@Notarizers.ca with your address and contact information, including email address.

Affidavits

Legal Affidavit From Notary Public in North York, Toronto, Canada

An affidavit is a document which has a statement that the deponent swears to be true to the best of their knowledge. There are usually five steps taken when preparing an affidavit for the hearing of a motion.

 

How Do You Prepare An Affidavit?

  1. Gather what you will need
  2. Determine the purpose of the affidavit
  3. Interview the deponent
  4. Prepare the draft affidavit
  5. Review, finalize and commission the affidavit

 

After the deponent has reviewed the document, the required corrections are made to the affidavit and the deponent signs. The document is finally signed by the commissioner of affidavits confirming that the oath or affirmation was properly administered.

Instead of a commissioner of affidavits, you can also obtain an affidavit from a notary public, or another officer of the court. These bodies are also authorized to administer oaths and sign in confirmation.

If you need assistance with legal affidavits and want them to be signed by a notary, make an appointment with Notarizers for our Affidavits services.

Simply fill out the inquiry form from our website’s home page or email us at info@Notarizers.ca with your address and contact information, including email address. We will get back to you with further details of what to send to us.

Notarization & Certification

A notary public is one who can witness oaths, solemn affirmations, statutory declarations or the signing of affidavits. A notary public may also certify documents to be true copies of the original.In some jurisdictions, a notary public can also draft contracts, promissory notes, wills, mortgages and other legal documents. Almost always, the powers of a notary public in each province are derived from provincial legislation.

For instance, in Ontario a notary public derives his or her authority from the Notaries Act which states: “[a] notary public has and may use and exercise the power of drawing, passing, keeping and issuing all deeds and contracts, charter-parties and other mercantile transactions in Ontario. It also involves attesting to all commercial instruments that may be brought before him or her for public protestation, and otherwise acting as is usual in the office of a notary public and having all the rights, profits and emoluments rightfully appertaining and belonging to the calling of notary public”.

In some jurisdictions, such as a number of provinces, the requirements for becoming a notary public are much more stringent than the above and effectively result in only lawyers being able to provide notary public services.

Just as commissioners of oaths, a notary public may also witness oaths, solemn affirmations and declarations. However, it is not necessary that a notary’s seal be affixed to the document.

Affirmation of an Oath

Where an oath is being witnessed by a notary public or a commissioner of oaths, the deponent is required to confirm the following inquiry: “Do you swear that the contents of this affidavit as subscribed by you are true? So help you God”.

If this type of oath is not preferred, deponents may instead affirm by responding ‘yes’ to: “Do you solemnly affirm and declare that the contents of this affidavit as subscribed by you are true?”

Where a solemn declaration is required instead, the deponent must declare in the positive to the following question: “Do you make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing it to be true and knowing that it is of the same force and effect as if made under oath?”

In every case, the deponent must be physically present before the notary public or commissioner of oaths.

Notarization of Documents

A notary public is a person who can witness oaths, solemn affirmations, the signing of affidavits or statutory declarations. A notary public may also certify documents to be true copies of the original. In some jurisdictions, a notary public can also draft contracts, promissory notes, wills, mortgages and other legal documents. Almost always, the powers of a notary public in each province are derived from provincial legislation. For example: In Ontario, a notary public derives his or her authority from the Notaries Act which states: “[a] notary public has and may use and exercise the power of drawing, passing, keeping and issuing all deeds and contracts, charter-parties and other mercantile transactions in Ontario. It also involves attesting to all commercial instruments that may be brought before him or her for public protestation, and otherwise acting as is usual in the office of a notary public and having all the rights, profits and emoluments rightfully appertaining and belonging to the calling of notary public”. In requirement of a solemn declaration, the deponent must declare in the positive to the following inquiry: “Do you make this solemn declaration conscientiously considering it to be true and knowing that it is of the same force and effect as if made under oath”.

It is mandatory that the deponent be physically present before the notary public or commissioner of oaths.
