Commissioner of Oaths Burnaby
Have your document Notarized by a Burnaby Notary
We’re glad that you decided to complete your notarization with us. Please read below to find answers to any questions you may have. You can book your appointment online or call us at 604-245-2244 to make an appointment. Find some answers to common questions below.
What type of identification should you bring?
You can bring two pieces of valid (non-expired) government identification, at least one having a photo of you with your signature, to your appointment. You can choose from the following: a driver’s licence, passport, nexus card, birth certificate, social insurance card, and permanent residence card. You may also use a non-expired credit card with your signature.
If the names on your identification vary, the Notary can use the name on your driver’s license by making a small edit to the document you want notarized. If you require a clean copy with corrections, your legal representative can prepare a Name Affidavit confirming that you acknowledge using other names.
How you can prepare for the notarization?
Please read the document before your appointment. It would help if you filled in the information that is asked of you before you arrive. Please do not sign the form. Your Notary (and Commissioner of Oaths) will ask you if you understand the nature and effect of the document, for example, before you sign. If you do not understand the form, you need to contact the financial institution or government body that gave it to you. You should not sign a document that you do not understand.
HELP WITH FORMS
Please bring two pieces of valid (non-expired) government identification, one with your photo and signature, and a recent utility bill showing that you reside at the address indicated in the form.
