Authentication and Legalization are the 2 steps in the Canadian process that make your Power of Attorney legally valid for use in another country. For the first step of Authentication at Global Affairs Canada, we offer a Priority 1, Standard 3, and Economy 10 business day service to meet your timeline and budget. Processing times for the Legalization of your Power of Attorney at the Embassy varies depending on which Embassy you require to Legalize your Power of Attorney. Once these two steps have been completed your Canadian Power of Attorney is ready for use internationally. To get an estimate on how long it will take for you, speak to an ALSC expert about current processing times.
