Commissioner for oaths

What is a Commissioner for Oaths?

Commissioners for oaths are empowered to administer oaths. They can officiate an oath that a person takes before them, affirming, for example, that the information contained in a document is true, or that a certain document is a true copy of the original.

Do I need a Commissioner for oaths to sign my documents?

You might want to communicate with the organization requiring your documents to make sure Commissioner for Oaths is the service you need.
