Notarizations cover a number of verifications for documents that can be done by a Notary Public. These can include witnessing a signature, verifying a certified true copy, or attesting to the validity of a signature. A Notarization verifies the document is accurate, and that any signatures were witnessed.

There are a few dozen types of documents that may have to be notarized in Canada for various reasons – everything from birth certificates and adoption papers to Death Certificates and Burial Permits, as well as a variety of business, travel, and trade documents. These can also include Certified True Copies, Mortgage documents, Travel Letters, or Letters of Invitation.

If you need a signature witnessed, you will need two pieces of ID, one of which must be government-issued (BC Drivers Licence, Passport, BC ID) and another can be a Social Insurance Card or a major credit card. If we are notarizing a signature, please ensure you wait until you are in front of the notary before you sign so that the notary can verify that they have witnessed the signature. The notary will confirm whether you understand the document you are signing. When you sign a document in front of the notary, it is considered to be the same as if you swear an oath in a court. In other words, you will confirm that the information in the document is true and correct.

At Uptown Notaries, we can Verify or Notarize a wide variety of documents when needed by our clients. Please keep in mind that we will not notarize or witness separation agreements, and we ask you to seek a lawyer’s advice.

    Gregg Cockrill - Barrister & Solicitor

  • "I’ve worked with Rose Miller for many years I’m currently a mortgage broker owner and prior to that I was in real estate for 12 years . I’ve had my share of lawyers and notaries and I can tell you without a doubt that Rose and her team are sharp, competent and organized. I never feel like a client will be mistreated or that a file will get messed up. In this industry mistakes can be costly. Her team is very quick to communicate with me if there is anything out of the ordinary or if they have questions regarding the client. I have never had a bad situation with Rose’s office not even once. I would not hesitate to recommend Rose and I do so on a continual basis she’s perfectly lovely and her team works very hard to make sure her reputation stays intact."

  • "Since I bought my first apartment in 1994 Rose has been completing real estate deals for me. She is honest and has a great deal of integrity. Rose and her office staff are always professional and reliable. When I send a contract, I have the utmost confidence that my transaction is in good hands and will be executed with care and competence. Rose has the experience and skills to ensure that your conveyance will go smoothly, with a positive result. For over a decade now I have held real estate and mortgage licenses, which has increased the number of purchases, sales, financing or refinancing needs that I have personally, as well as for clients. I have no reservation in referring clients and friends to Rose for their real estate conveyance or notary public services. The feedback from those clients and friends is always positive. I have dealt with banks that indicated that they almost exclusively dealt with lawyers when lending mortgage funds and they rarely allowed notary publics to handle the conveyance. Rose was always on their list though. This is a testament to her good reputation and many years of solid performance."

    Don Danbrook, CPA, CGA

Her efficiency, quick response times, thorough explanations and helpfulness, coupled with the polite, well-mannered staff were an absolute treat, and I have highly recommend her services to my home-buying friends and family. Thank you, Rose and team, for your professionalism and care!"
