Commissioner for Oaths
You may have an affidavit, oath, legal document, or other formal documentation that needs commissioning or notarization. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to determine whether you need a Notary Public or a Commissioner for Oaths. Typically, when you’re swearing or solemnly affirming an affidavit, oath, or the contents of a document within Alberta, a Commissioner for Oaths can sign and stamp your document.
A Notary Public, however, is typically required for out-of-province documents. For example, if you were to swear an affidavit in Alberta as part of a real estate transaction you completed in Manitoba, you would have to sign the affidavit before a Notary Public. Similarly, if you were required to provide a Certified True Copy of a document, such as a passport, to a government agency, a Notary Public would need to affix their seal to a copy of the document to render it a ‘Certified True Copy’ of your actual passport.
