What Is a Notary?

A notary public is a person granted the powers for taking affidavits as well as for verifying that signatures, marks, and copies, on documents are true and authentic.  A notary public is governed by the Notaries Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. N.6 which can be found and read in full here.

What Does a Notary Do?

An individual or company will need a notary as a notary is an individual who is appointed by the government of Ontario to verify and observe the signing of documents to ensure that the documents, and the signatures upon the documents, are true and authentic rather than forgeries or falsifications.

A notary can do the following:

  • Certify a signature on an original document;
  • Certify that a document is an original document; and
  • Certify that a copy of a document is a true copy of the original document.

A notary is unable to advise as to which of the above you will need.  Please contact the institution that requires you to have your documents notarized.
