Booking an Appointment:
Contact the Township at 905-833-5321 to be connected to the next available Commissioner or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. While it is not mandatory to book an appointment, it is strongly recommended so that we can ensure someone is available to assist you. We cannot guarantee availability of a commissioner without an appointment booked in advance.
ID & Documents: The individual taking the oath and signing the document must present one original piece of government issued photo identification (Ie. a valid driver's licence or valid passport which includes a current address). Please complete the document(s) to be commissioned beforehand, but do not sign the document in advance - the Commissioner must witness your signature.
Note: The Township does not provide Notary Public services. Our Commissioners will not sign the following:
- Wills *
- Living Wills
- Power of Attorney
- Divorce, Separation or Custody Documents
- Real Estate Documents *
Please contact a Notary Public or lawyer who can notarize these documents.
