Understanding Commissioning Vs. Notarizing Documents

People will often confuse having a document notarized and having a document commissioned. Understanding the difference between a notary public and a commissioner for oaths can be confusing. This misunderstanding can lead to spending money you do not have to, delays in completing documents, and the rejection of a document being submitted.

What is a Commissioner For Oaths?

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.
