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.
