Certificate of Incorporation
The Certificate of Incorporation or Articles of Incorporation is a document or charter that proves the existence of the company or the corporation in Canada
Canada is Not a signatory or Party to the Hague Apostille Convention, for this reason the Canadian documents like Certificate of Incorporation or Articles of Incorporation to be recognized in foreign countries and overseas, they must be stamped (means Authentication of the Global Affairs Canada here in Ottawa) and then be legalized (Legalization of the embassy in Ottawa : is the stamp that authorizes the document to be used in that country).
The authentication and the legalization services are mandatory processes we go through to give the Certificate of Incorporation the credibility to be valid and can be used oversees.
