Do you have the correct Degree for Authentication?
Some of the reasons why you may have been asked to do this are for working abroad, continuing studies, or work permit applications, to name a few. Whatever the reason it is important to have the correct style of education document to ensure Degree Authentication at Global Affairs Canada Authentication Services Section, legalized by the embassy, and is the correct type for the process that you are using it for in the foreign country. Let’s start with the first step of Degree Authentication that takes place at Global Affairs Canada here in Ottawa.
Global Affairs Canada Degree Authentication Rules
Global Affairs Canada can authenticate a Canadian University Degree or College Diploma from an institution recognized by the provincial Ministry of Education. All must be signed and have an embossed seal by the university or college. The original can be authenticated or a notarized copy made by a Canadian Lawyer, Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths. If you need assistance with this ask us about our Notary Services, we can make a certified copy for degree authentication to save stamps and signatures on your original degree. To save valuable time from the Global Affairs Canada current processing time of 20 business days, see more about our degree authentication service options to speed up the process.
Degree Attestation – Legalization At The Embassy Consulate
The second step of Degree Attestation Legalization takes place at the embassy consulate of the country where you are going to be using it. Most embassy consulates are located here in Ottawa and charge a fee to provide document legalization services. In addition some have other requirements or processing times that change often. Often Official Transcripts may also be required, these must be signed by the University or College registrar’s office in order for them to be attested or legalized.
