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.

Freedom of Information

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) provides individuals with the right to access certain records and personal information under the custody and control of the Township. The purpose of the MFIPPA is two-fold; providing access to information and protection from access to information in certain specific instances.

Please contact the Clerk's Department for assistance. In most cases, information is made readily available to the public and you won't need to make a formal request. The municipality may in some cases restrict access to certain documents to protect individual privacy or the public interest.

For more detailed information or to acquire an application form please contact the Township Office or visit the Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario at
