ALSC 5 Easy Steps

Our easy-to-follow process tells you what you need to do, allows you to set the turnaround time for completion and allows us, the experts, to take care of the rest.

1. We Verify Authentication

To help get your document accepted internationally we first need to ensure it can be authenticated at Global Affairs Canada, which maybe called Apostille in some countries. Depending on the type of document they have specific requirements. To get started use our Quick & Easy Verification. Still unsure? Not to worry, our consultation guarantees authentication-apostille call toll free 1-800-336-1132 for help or use our Online Quote Request.

2. We Confirm Embassy Requirements

The second step is the legalization of your document at the Embassy Consulate which maybe called attestation in other countries. Most consulates have specific requirements that must be followed and will charge a fee. Since requirements, fees and processing times change frequently using our expert embassy legalization service will prevent any delays for you.

Choose Your Service Speed

3. You Choose The Service Speed

Our Economy 10 day, Standard 3 day and Priority same day authentication of document services at Global Affairs Canada gives you options to meet your budget and timeline. Most embassies have a standard processing time for document legalization but a few do offer quicker service. Simply decide what service choices are best for you. Fees depend on how many documents, service speeds and whether a consulate is located in or outside of Ottawa. See more about our Embassy Legalization Services to complete the Apostille equivalent.

To send your document to our Ottawa national office we recommend using a traceable service like our shipping partners. To save shipping fees once services have been confirmed you can then drop off your document and Order Form at any of our ALSC Service Centers in Victoria, Vancouver, Surrey, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, North York, Mississauga, Montreal, Halifax or Ottawa.

I had been asked for an Apostille of Canadian and UK Documents. ALSC educated me about the Canadian Translation/Notarization/Authentication/Legalization Process in Canada and the Apostille Service for the UK. They checked that the source Document and Translation was satisfactory before accepting it for processing. They informed me as my Documents passed through each stage of the process.They completed the Canadian work promptly FedEx'ing everything to S America. The info for the UK allowed me to manage that task efficiently.I highly recommend this team

ALSC helped us navigate our Amazon EU registration process which involved getting an obscure notarial seal called the Apostille of the Hague. When no one else knew what to do, they stepped right up and helped us get the job done. Everyone we encountered at ALSC was extremely knowledgeable and courteous.

ALSC is just amazing service in so many levels. They return e-mails in a very fast manner, when you call them there is always a well informed person ready to give you choices and the follow-up during the proses is just standing. They kept me informed every step with e-mails. I should also mention the price as it cost me a 1/5 of the price of what others where charging in Vancouver. A lesson to learn here, go with the experts as you will save time, money and have peace of mind! Rosa P

I recently used Authentication and Legalization Services to have two documents authenticated and legalized for use abroad. The document submission process was very clear, and I was kept informed by email at every step of the way. I like the fact that my documents were checked prior to submission to ensure acceptance by the respective authorities. Efficient service with quick turnaround. I would definitely use again and recommend!

Great experience with this business with legalization of Canadian marriage certificate. Fast and expeditious service with professional, in-depth and accurate answers to whatever questions we had. The fees are a bit pricy but I wouldn't hesitate next time I'd need something stamped. Good information in all stages of the process. Updates came by email informing us of where our document was in the process all the time. Highly recommended.

Honestly I'm not one to provide feedback publically, but I was incredibly impressed with the simple, customer-friendly and efficient services I was provided with! Emails were answered within minutes as long as they were within working hours, and instructions were very clear and laid out logically. I wasn't hesitant to ask any questions before submitting my order as they more than happy to provide extensive clarity. Once they received my paperwork they made me feel like I was on the top of their to-do list and took care of my matters with utmost urgency. It was really a huge burden that they took off my shoulders and they did it in such a friendly way. I definitely recommend them!

Authentication Legalization Services Canada did a terrific with getting my documents translated, notarized and authenticated. Pegi and Danny kept me up to date on almost a daily basis as to the progress of the process. They were able to do in 1 week what I thought would take 2-3 weeks. Great job. I highly recommend their services.Tom Carleton
