I am a Commissioner of Oaths
As a city councillor, I am a Commissioner of Oaths.
The legal description of what I’m allowed to do (as specified here and here) is: A Commissioner of Oaths may only administer oaths and take and receive affidavits, statutory declarations, and affirmations within the Province for use in the Supreme Court or any other court in the Province.
The straightforward version is that I am able to a) confirm that your signature is your signature; and b) confirm that what you said is what you said.
This has to be done for use within Nova Scotia, since the authority to execute this oath is granted by the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. If these documents are for use outside Nova Scotia then I am not able to help.
How this works
- If you need someone to confirm your signature, for example for a legal document, a passport application, or for something else, then please get in touch by phone or e-mail.
- We talk about what you would like to accomplish and if I’m able to help.
- Once we determine that I can help, we set up a time and a place to meet, then we take care of the paperwork, I stamp my signature, and you’re good to go.
Is there a charge?
There is a fee of $19.95 for administering an oath.
I am not a Notary Public
As a city councillor, I am not a Notary Public.
As defined in the links above, a Notary Public is able to: Every such notary public shall have the power of drawing, passing, keeping and issuing all deeds and contracts, charter-parties and other mercantile transactions in this Province, and also of attesting all commercial instruments brought before him for public protestation, and otherwise of acting as is usual in the office of notary, and may demand, receive and have all the rights, profits and emoluments rightfully appertaining and belonging to the said calling of notary during pleasure.
