You may need to authenticate or legalize a document if you need to use the document abroad. Authentication is the verification of the genuineness of a document or signature.
To be able to use your Canadian issued documents abroad, International Law sets out a simple 2-step process:
First we need to have the provincial or federal government authenticate the signature of the local official or notary public who signed your document.
Once the signature is authenticated, we will need to take the documents to an embassy or consulate of the foreign country in which you will be using the document. The embassy or consulate will then legalize the authentication so for your use abroad.
