Hague Convention


Canada has not joined the Hague Convention, however Canada does have an alternative to the Apostile process that is done through Global Affairs Canada.

There are a number of services that claim to be able to expedite this process (I’m sure with extra charges). Authentication Legalization Services Canada and International Documents Canada are just two that popped up on Google.

On the websites it sounds like they then take the next step of having a US Consular authentication after Global Affairs Canada certification.

Before using this process, it is necessary to check the laws of the state where the property is located to confirm that the Canadian Notarization will be recognized (ie that State law doesn't mandate the use of the Hague Convention process)
