Do you require document authentication and legalization services?    

If you need to have certain Canadian documents processed for use in a foreign country then you need to have your documents authenticated and legalized.  This process is often referred to as either Apostille or Attestation.  Essentially, this process means that the documents stamped at Global Affairs Canada and then Legalized, or stamped again, by a particular diplomatic mission for the country where you intend to use the documents.

Does Capital Authentication provide document authentication and legalization services?

If you are looking for authentication and legalization services for your Canadian documents then we are the company for you.  We are a leader in the authentication and legalization space.  The staff at Capital Authentication is knowledgeable and extremely efficient.  As transparency is important to us, we have clearly posted our fees for service.  Our office offers four different processing options depending upon the degree of urgency that documents must be processed. Unlike the majority of our competitors, we prefer not to charge high fees as there is always a more cost effective option available.

What sets us apart from our competitors?

We focus on what we like to refer to as “completion time” as it pertains to the document authentication and legalization services. In other words, what is the total time required to complete both the authentication with Global Affairs Canada and legalization with a specific diplomatic mission while taking into account your specific timeline. The “completion time” idea is completely opposite from our competitors. The competitors generally post high fees for services and indicate that they can have documents submitted in “as little as one day”. What is not clearly identified is that it might take a few days to complete the processing at a particular diplomatic mission. The end result with the competitors model is the risk of someone paying higher fees for a service that they think that they require.  At Capital Authentication, we will help you select the right service to meet your unique situation. This typically results in not taking our most expensive service option.
