Notarization, Certification, Commissioning

$15.00 + hst

Any criminal record check that is issued at a local RCMP or local police detachment must be notarized before going through the authentication and legalization process.


A Certified Criminal Record Check that is issued by the RCMP headquarters in Ottawa does not require notarization.

Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure you sign it in front of the notary. They need to actually watch you sign the document, so don’t do it in advance.

  • Make sure that the notary signs the document and also has their name clearly printed. The Department of Foreign Affairs will reject a document if they cannot read the name of the notary.
