Services we offer:
When applying for various purposes, such as government, academic or employment, you may be asked to provide important documents like your birth certificate, passport, identification card, or academic records. Instead of submitting the original documents, it is often sufficient to provide a certified true copy, also known as a notarized copy. This helps to prevent the risk of losing or damaging your original documents, which can be expensive and time-consuming to replace.
To obtain a certified true copy, a Notary Public is usually required, as they certify that the photocopy of the original document is an accurate reproduction of the original. At Notary Lawyer Scarborough, we provide this service by signing, sealing and adding a statement to the photocopy to confirm its authenticity.
Certified true copies are commonly required for various purposes, such as applying for academic programs, employment opportunities, or government applications. For example, a foreign university may require certified copies of your academic transcripts and degrees, while an employer may need certified copies of your vocational documents. In addition, regulatory bodies may require certified copies of your identification and qualification documents before issuing you a license.
When applying for a visa for another country, certified true copies of documents such as your passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, or name change certificate may also be required. Applications to work or study in another country may also require certified copies of academic or vocational qualification documents.
Furthermore, certified copies may be necessary for professional or trade licenses, or post-secondary programs both in Canada and abroad. This may include proof of citizenship and residence, as well as transcripts, degrees, and diplomas. In some cases, foreign professional licensing bodies and other professional organizations may require not only certified copies, but also ‘Apostilled’ or ‘Legalized’ copies by their Consulate or Embassy.
At Notary Lawyer Scarborough, we offer certified true copies and other related services to help you meet your requirements. Contact us today for more information.
