Commissioner for Taking Affidavits

Commissioner for Taking Affidavits

An affidavit is a declaration or statement of facts, confirmed by the oath of the party making the affidavit.  It is taken before a person having authority to administer such an oath.

The Commissioners for Taking Affidavits Act (issued by the Province) empowers Municipal Clerks and other officials to take various types of declarations.  A Commissioner’s stamp is affixed to the document once the oath has been taken and signatures have been witnessed.

The Town Clerk and Deputy Clerk are authorized to commission such documents.

It is suggested to make an appointment in advance to ensure the availability of the Town Clerk or Deputy Clerk.

Please note, current proper identification (picture ID) is necessary and the individual(s) requiring the service must be present.  

For more information or to make an appointment, please contact the Town Municipal Offices at 905-468-3266.

Fee as of January 1, 2022: $16 per document
