Legalizations

As of Jan. 11, 2024, the Apostille convention came into effect in Canada. This means that requests for the legalization of notaries’ signatures on powers of attorney, lawyers’ signatures on powers of attorney, and civil status documents should be sent to the Quebec Ministry of Justice (for documents issued in Quebec) and to Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa (for documents issued in the Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Nunavut and Prince Eward Island)
The Consulate General will continue to legalize the signatures of the referenced translators.

The applicant will have to mail:

  • Original of the document to be legalized,
  • Copy of the applicant’s passport,
  • “Express Post” prepaid envelope,
  • Money order (bank or postal) for the payment of consular fees (art. 69 of the Table of Consular Fees) for each document to be legalized.
