Updated January 27, 2022 – Global Affairs Canada has reported it is continuing to experience processing delays due to current conditions. Although they are quoting an estimated processing time of 35 business days on their website, our tracking shows it currently takes up to 38 business days. We are meeting with them daily, and we will keep you updated on any changes.
Validating a Canadian document for international use is a 2-step process. For the first step choose the Global Affairs Canada Authentication Service that best suits your needs. Make sure to click the plus sign for the number of documents you need Authenticated.
Legalization at the Embassy is the second step. Processing times vary and are in addition to the Authentication processing time at Global Affairs Canada. The embassy charges a fee per document which is in addition to our fees below. To help us provide you the current fee make sure to click the plus sign for the number of documents you need Legalized, so it matches what you selected for Authentication in the last step.
Once your document is completed it needs to get back to you or wherever it needs to go. Simply choose the shipping solution that works best for you. Please note quoted shipping fees are for a standard envelope weighing no more than .5kg/1 lb.
