Steps to follow for Certification of Documents
A commissioner of oath could certify your documents. There is one in every hospital. A lawyer and a public notary could also certify documents and sign photocopies.
You must present your original document and the photocopy to a commissioner of oaths, who will certify that the copy is indeed a ture copy of the original.
You will find a commissioner of oaths at the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Undergraduate Medical Education (for undergraduate medical students enrolled at McGill) or in health institutions. McGill University Health Centers offer this service for our postgraduate medical trainees.
