A Commissioner of Oath is an individual authorized by law to witness signatures for certain documents such as affidavits*, oaths, pension documents from other countries and statutory declarations.
Please note: As a result of the move back into Step 2 by the Province of Ontario on January 5th, 2022, the Municipal Centre is now closed to the public and commissioning services are temporarily suspended until atleast January 26th, 2022.
Hours of Service: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday to Friday (excluding Statutory Holidays). Please note: We recommend that you call to book an appointment to ensure that a Commissioner is available to assist you.
2022 Fees: $18.00 (HST Exempt) for residents and businesses
$24.00 (HST Exempt) for non-residents and businesses
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.
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 Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Divorce, Separation or Custody Agreements. Please contact a Notary Public or lawyer who can notarize these documents.
* Affidavits regarding Wills and Real Estate require the services of a lawyer.
