Unfortunately, you cannot get an Apostille Certification for a Canadian Power of Attorney to use it abroad. Since Canada did not sign the Apostille Convention of 1961, we rely on the older two-step process of Authentication & Legalization. This process starts at Global Affairs Canada and ends with the Embassy Consulate of the country in which you intend to use your document.  The good news is that this two-step process is the direct equivalent of an Apostille and is accepted in any country requiring one for your Canadian Power of Attorney. Talk to an Global Document Solutions expert about how we can get the equivalent of an Apostille for your Canadian Power of Attorney.
