What is a Commissioner For Oaths?

| Sep 11, 2019 | Commission |

The Commissioners for taking Affidavits Act in Ontario allows for people to be appointed to be a commissioner for oaths. A commissioner for oaths is able to take and receive affidavits, affirmations and declarations in and for Ontario. A stamp is used along with their signature but there isn’t a seal. These appointments expire and must be renewed.

There are also people who are commissioner for oaths who are so by virtue of their office or status. These people include:

  • Judges
  • Lawyers
  • Students-at-law
  • Political representatives
  • Police officers
  • Notary publics
