Commissioner of Oath services are offered through the Clerks Department between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday (excluding Statutory Holidays). A Commissioner of Oath is an individual who is authorized by law to witness signatures for certain documents which include affidavits*, oaths, pension documents from other countries and statutory declarations.
The 2017 fee for Township residents and businesses is $16.00 (HST Exempt). The fee for non-Township residents and businesses is $21.50 (HST Exempt).
It is strongly recommended that you contact the Clerks Department in advance of your visit to confirm that a Commissioner is available to assist you when you expect to attend the Township offices.
The individual who will be taking the oath and signing the document must present one original piece of government issued photo identification: i.e. a valid driver’s license, or a valid passport which includes a current address. Please bring in your completed document to be commissioned, but do not sign the document in advance. The Commissioner must witness your signature.
The Township does not provide Notary Public services. Our Commissioners will not sign Wills, Living Wills,
Power of Attorney, Divorce, Separation or Custody Agreements. A list of Notary Publics and lawyers who notarize documents can be found in your local phone directory.
* Affidavits regarding Wills and Real Estate require the services of a lawyer.
