A commissioner for oaths administers oaths, meaning they can take or receive declarations, affidavits, statutory declarations or affirmations to be used in Alberta, other provinces or other countries/states that recognize Alberta commissioner for oaths. This role is different than a notary public. A commissioner for oaths also assists with a variety of documents that require signing from individuals. For example, this includes out of province real estate paperwork, out of country documents and more.  Please note: this service is not the same as an acceptance agents when you deal with IRS from the United States regarding ITINs.
