Documents from Canada are only recognized abroad, if they have been legalized. This means that their authenticity needs to be confirmed separately.
Canada has not joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents.
The legalization of a document is a very lengthy procedure. It has to be authenticated by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada. The document can then be finally legalized by the respective country's embassy.
The following documents can be legalized:
- Excerpts from the Trade Register
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Judicial decisions
- Notarially certified copies of documents
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
