ALSC Shipping Solutions
In order for us to authenticate and legalize your document it must be delivered to our national office in Ottawa as this is where Global Affairs Canada and most embassy consulates are located. To make this easy for you, but more importantly save you money, take advantage of our Free Priority FedEx overnight shipping available at any of our ALSC service centers in Victoria, Vancouver, Surrey, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, North York, Mississauga, Montreal or Halifax.
If you are not close to one of our ALSC service centers, or our Ottawa national office, not to worry we do have solutions for you. To make this easier for you we have teamed up with our shipping partners Canada Post, Purolator, Federal Express (FedEx) and UPS for your national and international delivery needs. Our services do include the Free return of your document by Canada Post regular mail although tracking is not available with this choice of delivery.
If you would like it returned using your own courier please include a self-addressed pre-paid courier waybill and envelope and we will assist to have it returned to you or sent to a third party at no additional cost. If you need courier return internationally we can help, simply let us know where you want the document to go we take care of the rest.
For an affordable and traceable delivery service to or from our office from within Canada we recommend using a Canada Post Xpresspost envelope. Service is usually 1-2 business days to or from any major center in Canada. National and Regional Xpresspost envelopes can be purchased at any of the over 6,500 Canada Post outlets, find the closest Canada Post outlet near you. We recommend that you buy two, one for shipping to us the second include for the return of your document. You can also easily order this service online using Ship-in-a-Click. As a high volume user of the service we receive up to two deliveries a day at our office.
Another important service Canada Post is able to provide is money orders. These are provided in Canadian $ for the payment of legalization fees, which are required by the embassy to complete the legalization of your document.

Personal or Corporate Document
Are you using the Canadian document internationally for Personal or Corporate use?
Some of our clients require a Notary before Authentication or would like to keep their original document so they request us to make a notarized copy. If this is you simply choose our Notary services. Translation services are required if your document contains a language other than English or French or if you need it translated to the foreign language. If this is you simply send us a scan of the document. We will send you a quote which is determined on a per word basis. If you want a scan of the official stamps on your Authenticated & Legalized document sent to you by email let us know. Make sure if requesting Notary or Digital Copies you choose the number you require.
1, 3, 10 Business Day Authentication Service
Validating a Canadian document for international use is a 2 step process. First choose the ALSC Global Affairs Canada Authentication Service that best suits your timeline and budget. When choosing your service make sure you tell us how many documents you need Authenticated.
Embassy Legalization Fee
The Embassy charges a fee to legalize your document which varies per country and sometimes by the type of document. To make payment easier and to save our clients time, if required in secured funds a standard $10 money order fee will be added to the legalization fee. With some countries we will need to confirm the fee upon confirmation of your order. For others simply select the amount of fees for the number of documents you need legalized. If you do not see your country listed choose the world icon. Please note that some fees are estimated as they change often.
Argentina fee to be confirmed

Embassy Legalization Service
Document legalization at the embassy consulate is the second step. Most will be able to legalize their document at an embassy in Ottawa. Others, due to government rules, will need to legalize their document at an embassy located outside of Ottawa. Country's that require outside Ottawa embassy legalization include: Argentina, Bahrain, Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, Italy, Oman, Spain. For the UAE it will depend where your document was issued. The UAE Toronto consulate will only process documents from Toronto and Southern Ontario, while the UAE Embassy Ottawa will legalize documents issued from the rest of Ontario and all other provinces. Select the legalization service that applies to the country where you will be using your document. The estimated legalization processing time is in addition to the authentication time and will be provided upon the confirmation of your order as it varies per country and changes often. Make sure the number of documents you select for Legalization matches the amount of documents you need Authenticated.
