Home / Authen­ti­ca­tion + Legal­iza­tion

For­eign Gov­ern­ments and Orga­ni­za­tions some­times require the RCMP’s Cer­ti­fied Crim­i­nal Record Check to be authen­ti­cated by the Depart­ment of For­eign Affairs and Inter­na­tional Trade (DFAIT) and legal­ized by the respec­tive Embassy/Consulate, before they accept it.

Canada is not a sig­na­tory of Hague Con­ven­tion abol­ish­ing the require­ment for legal­iza­tion for for­eign pub­lic doc­u­ments; there­fore the term “Apos­tille” is not used for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of doc­u­ments in Canada. The doc­u­ments orig­i­nat­ing in Canada need to be authen­ti­cated and legal­ized for use in some countries.

In addi­tion to our express fin­ger­print­ing ser­vices (for obtain­ing cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check from the RCMP) to reduce wait time to 3–5 busi­ness days, we can get RCMP’s cer­ti­fied crim­i­nal record check authen­ti­cated by DFAIT and legal­ized by the respec­tive Embassy/Consulate to pro­vide full ser­vice and to reduce the costs.

Please con­tact us and we promise to pro­vide our excel­lent ser­vices at rea­son­able fee.
