Each of our lawyers is a notary public. As they will meet with you, it is useful as most foreign jurisdictions recognize the notary seal as one of assurance. Our signing agent services are available for out of city, province and country required signings.

Where needed, we can also draft the documents that require notarizing for you. We offer same day appointments where needed. While a notary public can notarize documents for paperwork required in any country, we cannot give legal advise or direction relating to documents destined outside Alberta. Please note that while a notary public can notarize personal guarantees, if you require a personal guarantee this appointment takes more time than just a notary.

Notary Vs. Commissioner Vs. Lawyer
People often misunderstand the difference between a lawyer notary and a commissioner for oaths. In Alberta all lawyers are also a notary public. The same is true for students-at-law. The province also authorizes notaries. Someone, with only notary certification, may not practice law or give legal advice, only the tasks allowed for notaries. A notary is authorized to do more things than a commissioner so that they may always commission a document, whereas a commissioner may not perform all the aspects that a notary may. The ability to complete independent legal advice or a personal guarantee only rests with a lawyer.
