Commissioner Of Oaths

A number of staff members, by virtue of their office, are "Commissioners of Oaths". If you require the service of a Commissioner of Oaths, please call to make an appointment to ensure the availability of a Commissioner.

Once an appointment is scheduled, you must come to the Municipal Office in person and sign the affidavit in front of the Commissioner. You must provide one original piece of government issued identification (no photocopies permitted) that includes your photo and signature (ex. valid driver's licence, passport, etc.) There is a fee of $5.65 for this service.

A Commissioner of Oaths is not the same as a "Notary Public". A Notary Public is a person who is authorized under the Notaries Act to do various things, including commission documents, certify documents as true copies and to verify signatures. If you require the services of a Notary Public, please contact a Lawyer's Office.

To ensure on-time delivery, we ask that you submit your request at least four weeks before the event date.
