Quebec Apostille Services

The recent accession of Canada to the Hague Apostille Convention marks a significant shift in the international legal landscape, particularly for the province of Quebec. With this development, the General Directorate of Registers and Certification of the Ministry of Justice in Quebec has been designated as a competent authority for the Apostille of all documents originating in Quebec. This change simplifies the process of legalizing documents for international use, enhancing efficiency and reducing bureaucratic hurdles for individuals and businesses alike.

The Role of Quebec in the Apostille Process

Quebec, known for its unique legal and administrative systems within Canada, now plays a pivotal role in the Apostille process. The General Directorate of Registers and Certification, as the appointed authority, is responsible for verifying and certifying the authenticity of various documents, ensuring their recognition and acceptance in all countries party to the Apostille Convention.

Numerous documents originating in Quebec may require an Apostille for international use, including:

  1. Educational Documents: Degrees, transcripts, and certificates from Quebec’s educational institutions.
  2. Legal Documents: Court orders, affidavits, and notarized agreements.
  3. Corporate Documents: Articles of incorporation, business contracts, and commercial agreements.
  4. Personal Documents: Birth certificates, marriage certificates, and death certificates.
