We are a team of highly experienced and qualified Lawyers, Notaries, and Commissioners of Oaths. We are licensed by the Law Society of Ontario and our seals and signatures are registered with Official Documents Services Canada. This means that our notarizations are eligible for the Legalization and Authentication Process needed to hold up in Ontario and outside of Canada.

Competence And Experience

We have all the necessary designation covered so that we can deal with any document that comes our oway. All of our notaries recieve additional high-level training from Walk-In Notary. Together, we have notarized hundreds of thousands of documents from around the world. In other words, we’ve seen it all! You can rest assured that your document will be notarized correctly, or your money back!
No Bias And No Up-sell
You know how it is…you go in for an oil change and suddenly you’re told that you also have to change your air-intake filter, catalytic convertor, breaks., etc.
Most notary companies also provide legal services. They use the opportunity of having you in their office for a notarization to also sell you their other services. They may, for example, tell you that your Power of Attorney was drafted incorrectly and that they can fix it for you, for an additional cost of course.
That can’t happen at Walk-In Notary. Notarizing is all we do – that’s our specialty! We have no other services to sell you. And in the event that you do require additional legal services we can help with that too.
Online Commissioning (Notary)
On march 16, 2020 the law society of ontario changed some of its rules to enable lawyers to commission documents online through video and online signing platforms. this change was made to deal with the fact that many offices are closed and it is not safe for lawyers to meet with clients in person. that said, not all documents can be commissioned online. please read more information about this below.
documents cannot be notarized online because a notarization requires a notary to physically emboss your document with a seal. however, documents can be commissioned (i.e. signed by a commissioner of oaths). in many cases this is sufficient as a seal is not required (especially due to recent changes to ontario legislation and law society of ontario rules).
These Are Examples Of Some Documents That Can Be Commissioned Online
- Any Affidavit (Affidavit As To Identity, Affidavit Of Service, Affidavit For Divorce (Form 36) Affidavits For The Any Level Court In Canada)
- Statutory Declarations (E.g. Progress Payment Declarations, Osap Declaration, Custodianship Declaration,
- Automobile Proof Of Loss Insurance Form
- Name Change Application
- Any Attestation
- Any Document that Requires Commissioner Of Oaths
- Some Real Estate Documents (You Will Need To Contact The Brokerage or Third-party that you will Be Submitting your Documents to and ask then if they will accept an Online Commissioning /Witnessing of Your Signature).
- Document Drafting Of Documents We Would Normally Draft (Such As Letters of Consent To Travel, Statutory Declaration Re Name, Address, or Marital Status, Affidavit of Identity, Affidavit Re Work Experience, Etc.) Please note that we do not draft wills or powers of attorney.
Please note that it is ultimately your responsibility to find out if your document will be accepted by the requesting party. we cannot guarantee that your document will be accepted. if you are unsure we urge you to contact the requesting party. all that we can do is confirm that we are entitled to commission the documents listed above. Please read more about this here.
