What is notarization of document?

If you are new to the concept of notarization, let me explain it in brief. Notarization of documents in Canada, or anywhere else for that matter is done to ensure that the document is valid. For instance if you take a loan against your property by mortgaging it and have a written contract signed by you and the lender, the lender can allege in future that the signature is forged or that the lender has been threatened to sign. A notarized deed on the other hand would mean that both you and the lender have signed the document voluntarily in the presence of the government representative, who is an impartial and third party witness to the process, and hence neither you nor the lender would be able to deny the contract. Notarization is validating such a document with the signature as well as the stamp of a notary public Canada.
