Global Affairs Canada Authentication Degree, Diploma, Transcripts


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 Notary Public. If you need assistance with this ask us about our Notary Services, we can make a notarized copy of your degree to save stamps and signatures on the original. The best part about using our services is that although Global Affairs Canada current processing time is 20 business days, we can save you valuable time, see more about our degree authentication service options to speed up the process.

Legalization at the Embassy Consulate


The second step of Legalization takes place at the embassy consulate of the country where you are going to be using your Degree. Most embassy consulates are located here in Ottawa and charge a fee to provide Legalization services. In addition, some have additional requirements like Transcripts and because of the current conditions we find ourselves in their processing times change often. If official transcripts are required, they must be signed by the University or College registrar’s office for them to be accepted for Legalization at the Embassy.
