Why Do Documents Need Authorization?
Certain foreign countries will not accept documents before they have been authenticated. The authentication process, performed by a foreign country’s embassy, certifies that a Canadian public official’s signature, seal or stamp on the document is genuine. Should you require clarification, contact the party requesting you provide documentation.
