When you need to use important legal documents for legal purposes, but do not want to send away or otherwise lose possession of the original, then you can get a specially made and certified true copy. In other cases, the copies of the documents may need to be sent to you in another country or jurisdiction. Sometimes these copies are called a “Notarized copy”.
At Uptown Notaries, we are authorized to create Certified True Copies of documents such as Passports, Drivers Licences, Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Visas, Contracts, or some other documents that you may need for applications, or to avoid the risk of identity theft by mailing or sending originals.
Certified True Copies can only be made from the complete original document, and the Notary Public doing the certification must see the complete original document and compare it to the copy. We will make an exact copy of the original document and provide a certificate to be affixed to the exact copy, which states that it is a certified true copy of the original document. The copy should then be accepted the same as the original.
Come to Uptown Notaries if you need a Certified True Copy of a Document. We are qualified and authorized to make Certified True Copies of documents. Uptown Notaries is conveniently located on North Road in Burnaby, close to Coquitlam and New Westminster.
