Why Do Documents Need Authentication?

Why Do Documents Need Authentication?

Most foreign countries will not accept documents before they have been authenticated. The authentication process in Canada, performed by Global Affairs Canada and then a foreign country’s embassy, certifies that a Canadian public official’s signature, seal or stamp on the document is genuine. While this process can be time consuming and detailed, our experts are well trained and experienced to ensure the process runs smoothly. Should you require clarification regarding your foreign application requirements, please contact the requesting agency (ex. employer, immigration consultant, etc.).
