Translation of Documents, Services of Commissioner for Taking Affidavits.

It is common for people going through the immigration process or for new immigrants to require services of other professionals, such as notary public, commissioner for taking affidavits/ commissioner of oaths, translators while dealing with preparation of official documentation which has to be certified, sworn or professionally translated.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) often requires the following documents from the applicants while assessing their applications for temporary and permanent residence:

  • translation of documents (any document that is not in English or French must be accompanied by a translation and an affidavit from the person who completed the translation and a certified copy of the original document unless translated by the Canadian certified translator)
  • certified true copies of documents (as per the IRCC, persons authorized to certify copies in Canada include: Commissioner of Oaths/ Commissioner for Taking Affidavits, Notary Public, Justice of the Peace)
  • statutory declarations/affidavits (sworn or affirmed legal documents commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement or regulation when no other evidence is available)

The ICC has a Commissioner for Taking Affidavits on staff which allows providing additional services for our clients in the preparation and attestation of statutory declarations or affidavits for immigration and citizenship application matters.  In addition, we work in close cooperation with lawyers, translators, interpreters, and educational advisors.
