Language Bank-Commissioner for Oaths Services

Language Bank Program does NOT provide Notary Public Services. If you need Notary Public Services, you will need to contact a lawyer.

When you need a commissioner for oaths

In Alberta, a Commissioner for Oaths is defined by the Commissioners for Oaths Act in the Statutes of Alberta, Chapter C-19. A Commissioner for Oaths administers oaths, and takes and receives affidavits, declarations, and affirmations that will be used in Alberta. Therefore, you need a commissioner for the oaths when you declare a statement is true or when you need to certify/notarize a true copy of your original document (s).
