China Canada Work Apostille Documents

Apostille Guide for Official Canadian Document to Work in China 

As of January 11, 2024, Canada's accession to the Hague Apostille Convention has transformed the process of using official Canadian documents in China for work purposes. This updated guide aims to streamline your experience in obtaining the necessary documents and ensuring their validity in China, whether you are a Canadian individual seeking employment or a Canadian corporation conducting business there.

Updated Requirements for Canadian Documents in China

Canadian professionals and corporations now benefit from a simplified verification process. Essential documents such as university degrees, diplomas, police clearance certificates, certificates of incorporation, director’s resolutions, or articles of incorporation only require an Apostille. This can be obtained either from Global Affairs Canada or the relevant provincial competent authority. This significant change replaces the previous two-step authentication and legalization process, making it faster and more efficient.

Procuring Essential Documents

For personal documents like degrees, diplomas, and police checks, Canadians should approach the respective educational institutions and Canadian police stations. An RCMP police check, which involves fingerprint verification, is recommended for its comprehensiveness. Corporate entities can acquire necessary documents from legal professionals or relevant federal departments such as Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada.

The Apostille Process in Canada

With the implementation of the Hague Apostille Convention, Canadians now have a streamlined process for document verification. The Apostille certifies the authenticity of the signature and seal on the document, ensuring its recognition in China without the need for further legalization.
