A Commissioner of Oaths, also known as Commissioner for Taking Affidavits, is not the same as Notary Public. A Notary Public has much broader authority. If your document requires the signature of a Notary Public, or you require certified copies of documents, then you will need to contact a lawyer or Notary.

Ther person signing the affidavit must appear before the Commissioner and must show proof of identity via Government issued photo identification such as a driver’s licence, health card or passport. The person signing the affidavit must sign the document in the presence of the Commissioner.

There is no guarantee that a document can be commissioned until the document is seen by Commissioner.

The Commissioner cannot witness documents where there is a requirement to personally know the person for a certain length of time, i.e. Passport Guarantor.
