Everything you need to know about notary services

The functions of notaries public vary across Canada. In Manitoba, a notary public is a person authorized to witness documents and to certify copies of original documents. Unlike commissioners for oaths, notaries can witness documents that are sent worldwide. Most lawyers are notaries and charge a small fee for the service.

A photo ID is needed as identification verification when a notary is witnessing a signature. The witness must sign in front of the notary.

Copies of original documents are made where it is impractical to send the original or where an institution, such as a government agency or a university, requires that a copy be notarized. A notary cannot certify a copy of a copy; the original document must be produced.

A notary cannot verify the truth or contents of documents. It is up to the individual to ensure that the document is correct.

Some organizations require that, after being notarized, documents have an authentication certificate attached. This is a separate certificate that states that the signature and seal of the notary are valid. The Companies Office, which oversees commissioners for oaths and notaries public in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba, issues authentication certificates.
