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.internati...icates_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?
