Notary and Commission

A sworn declaration is a document with a set of statements that you declare and affirm to be true (such as an “affidavit”). You need to do this in front of a “commissioner of oaths”. A commissioner of oaths is someone authorized by the Province of Ontario to witness certain kinds of sworn declarations. You could be asked to affirm a declaration when you apply to the government for something or by a company when they need information from you. It may be a form given to you or you may be expected to write it yourself.

Sometimes government forms ask you to sign them in front of a “notary public”. A notary public is a person authorized by the Province of Ontario to witness the swearing of oaths and to certify documents. Declarations that will be sent outside of Ontario need to be “notarized”. You may also need the services of a notary if you require certified copies of documents. We will make photocopies and then “certify” them as copies of the original by having the notary public sign the copies.

Complete professional service! All I hear and read in the news is about how long the immigration process is in Canada. But Charlene and her team at AIPS completed our sponsorship for my wife’s permanent residency in record time!!! This is obviously due to their attention to detail and utmost professionalism. Thank you AIPS! I want to recommend Charlene to anyone looking for help in the daunting process involved in an immigration application. Well done!!

Review Vaishakh

We consulted Charlene for our Spouse Open Work Permit. She and Veruska guided us through the entire procedure gracefully with professionalism. The best thing about them is they reach out to us, whenever there is a delay in uploading documents, biometrics or medical from our side. Such dedication to their job is worth commendable. Special thanks to Veruska who ensured all our documents get uploaded and submitted on time, when Charlene was unavailable. Thanks to their service, we got PPR within two months. Keep up the good work. I highly recommend AIPS for any immigration consultation.
