25 Years of Providing Fast, Accurate, Reliable Service

We understand that doing anything in a foreign country can be difficult, let alone having the correct paperwork to do it. Authentication Legalization Services Canada (ALSC) served its first client 25 years ago, helping to make sure they got it right the first time. Since then we have served individuals and corporations from all across Canada and around the world, giving them an international document expert on their side. It has been a pleasure not only saving our clients money but also their time, the most valuable benefit of using our service.

As Canada’s first document authentication and legalization service, the Apostille equivalent, our focus is international document certification. Our service is recommended by Global Affairs Canada Authentication to provide quick assistance saving you up to 20 valuable business days and our experience with the embassies for legalization makes ALSC the preferred provider for international document processing. Convenient ALSC service centers located across Canada in Victoria, Vancouver, Surrey, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, North York, Mississauga, Montreal, and Halifax provide a quick solution with free FedEx shipping saving you time and money.

As the most experienced in the industry our expert help is backed by our service guarantee and safe return of your sensitive document.
