Hi All,

I am looking for getting some documents notarized. These are not any legal papers, just some appointment letter & other docs reqd for an application. I inquired some places like read seal notary, some lawyers etc. The minimum I could fine was $35 per signature :mad: , Quite exorbitant.
I know in US, people charge < $7 for these services.

Am looking for a cheap option as I am not really seeking any LAW services.
Can any one get me a deal for this ??

I paid $25 at city hall to have a commissioner of oaths notarize a letter. I wasn't happy about paying that much, but it was convenient, so I went with it.

I need it it done few month ago I just started calling different law offices and the cheapest I found was $25... I also found that notary public offices I called were charging a lot more (one even wanted 59.99... crazy)

The closer the Notary is to the government office, the more $ they charge.
If they are in the same building, expect to get jacked on price.

I'd be pleased to notarize or commission any document for no charge, provided that is all that is required. I'm in the GTA. You would, of course, have to work within my schedule.

EDIT: I am no longer offering this service. My original thinking was to offer free notary services for members of this community, in the hopes that I may get an actual client or two out of the deal. Many requests I have received have been from people who appear have somehow found my post and set-up an account just to ask for the notary service. If you can prove you are a low-income individual then I'll notarize for free, otherwise it's $30.

Thanks Canuck32 :) . I am sure your offer will be of help to someone in need :) .

I got my documents notarized at one of the Public library at:

Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA)
4155 Sheppard Ave. E. Suite #100, Scarborough, Ontario, M1S 1T4

The visiting lawyer did hesitate a little, But he was good to notarize the docs.
I really had more then 15 docs to be notarized & I cannot afford to pay for them for sure. as for canadian citizenship , no one really asked me about it, But yes the lawyer did mention that this service is usually for low/no income people.

Hope it helps someone.

I am in woodbridge and am looking to a get a single document notarized.

It is for travel out of the country with my daughter and since my wife won't be travelling with me she has written a note authorizing this travel.

I called around to a few notaries and they wanted $40 - $60. Absolutely ridiculous! I think I'll take my chances at the airport if thats the price I have to pay.

Can anybody recommend an inexpensive notary in the Woodbridge area??

I had to get a doc notarized ... went to a law office that presides in the building I was going to - just 5 doors down. 25 bucks by a lawyer ... convenient so what the heck.

I phoned a notary by my house and he wanted 30 bucks and you had to make an appt. I just walked into the law office and did it within 10 mins ... i'm not here for the service, i'm here for the signature.
He .... looka lika MAN!

I tell you every ting!


If you haven't figured it out yet ... i'm not a female. Have you ever watched MADtv?

For notary public, will I need to draft the document or will the office do that for me? It's for my daughter flying with my wife out of Toronto and flying back in as an unaccompanied minor.

You should write the letter yourself. The notary just witnesses you sign the document and then puts his signature & stamp on it.

There's a sample travel consent letter at ... nt-eng.asp that should help you out.
