Authentication Legalization Services Canada Becomes Global Document Solutions

Ottawa, ON – Authentication Legalization Services Canada (ALSC), a leading provider of document authentication and legalization services, is excited to announce its rebranding to Global Document Solutions on August 8, 2023. The name change reflects the company’s evolution and expansion into global document authentication and apostille services following Canada's recent accession to the Hague Apostille Convention.

“Becoming Global Document Solutions more accurately represents our comprehensive service offerings in this new era of simplified document processing for Canadians and international clients alike,” said Bill Strange, CEO of Global Document Solutions. “As Canada steps into the fold of the Hague Apostille Convention, we are ready to guide our clients through the changes and make the process of document authentication and legalization more efficient and straightforward than ever.”

This name change coincides with Canada’s official joining of the Hague Apostille Convention, a significant step for the nation in simplifying the process of legalizing documents for international use. The Hague Convention simplifies this process by allowing a document issued in one signatory country to be recognized in any of the other signatory countries without further authentication or legalization.

With this move, Global Document Services continues to commit itself to delivering first-rate services and guidance for its clients, ensuring they remain compliant with international regulations regarding the authentication and legalization of documents.

“In the face of the evolving global landscape, we are more dedicated than ever to serving our customers’ needs,” said Bill. “Whether they require assistance with international document authentication, an apostille, or help navigating the new procedures under the Hague Convention, we are here to provide unparalleled service and support.”

The company's comprehensive services will remain at the same high standard that clients have come to expect, with an expanded portfolio to include apostille services for countries that are party to the Hague Convention.
