When do I need a
Notary Public vs. a Commissioner for Oaths?
In Alberta, a Notary Public administers oaths and affirmations, takes and receives affidavits and statutory declarations, and witnesses and authenticates the execution of certain classes of documents for use within Alberta, as well as jurisdictions outside of Alberta.
A Commissioner for Oaths may only deal with documents to be used in the Province of Alberta, and is restricted to administering oaths and affirmations, and taking and receiving affidavits and declarations.
Typical documents include:
- Business Transactions
- Consent to Travel Documents
- Certification of true copies
(certificates, diplomas, identification, etc.)
- Permanent Resident Card Applications
- Powers of Attorney
- Real Estate Documents
- Statutory Declarations
