Commissioner for Taking Affidavits
A commissioner for taking affidavits, or commissioner of oaths, is authorized to take affidavits, oaths, declarations or sworn statements only if the document relates to University business. For example, a commissioner can take a declaration from a document holder that s/he is presenting a true copy of a document held in his/her possession. A commissioner is also able to witness a signature on a document, including a letter of invitation for a Canadian visitor’s visa if it relates to University business, unless the entity issuing or requesting the document requires it to be notarized.
The Centre has two Commissioners for Taking Affidavits. Appointments must be booked directly with the commissioners by phone or email.
