Canadian Newbies !

Recommended Posts

I actually just found the answer to your question yesterday since I am just starting all the paperwork now :) My mom works with the provincial government and looked it up. So! Apparently Canada didn't sign the Hauge (sp?) agreement so we don't do Apostilles here. The process is, get your documents photocopied and notarized (by a notary or registry) then send your documents to the address on this site (the website has the rest of the process) http://www.international.gc.ca/department-ministere/authentication-authentification_documents.aspx?view=d#Certificates_of_birth It takes about 3 weeks, they will mail the documents back if you provide a prepaid (best to use UPS or something you can easily track) envelope. Then you can mail your newly internationally certified documents to your resort. The notary will likely cost something (a lot of government officials are registered notaries, ask your MLA, MP or alderman possibly) but the international certification (equivalent to the apostille) is free, just give yourself the time needed to receive it. If you go with one of the companies online that provide the service, all you're really paying for is for someone else to do all that. Hope that helps you! :)

Hey ladies, Just wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm from B.C. and I'm having a legal cermony in mexico and I'm just confused on the legal documents that are required to have the legal ceremony in mexico. The part I'm confused about is the apostile document. What is this, do I need it and where do I get it?

So I got some more info on this now. If you get your birth certificates notarized, you can then take them to the mexican embassy closest to where the birth certificates were issued (Mine in calgary, FI's was in drumheller, so we can go to the embassy in calgary) and they can officially notarize them for you and it will be recognized in mexico. A little easier then sending them to ottawa.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
