Does anybody know if a Notary Republic and a Commissionair of Oaths is the samething. I need to get a timeshare deed notarized. I can go to my town office and pay $5.00 to get it done by a Commissionair of Oaths and a Notary charges $40.00 at a lawyers office.

Can anybody help.

Thanks

A commissioner of oaths and a notary are not the same thing. If you have a deed in Canada that you are planning to submit to the land titles office, I believe a commissioner of oaths is acceptable, I know for a fact it is here in Alberta.

(There's a very long story involving me driving very, very fast to land titles in Edmonton w/ my wife in the seat beside me phoning to find a commissioner of oaths on the way.)

Edited to add: If you're signing something for recording elsewhere (ie, in the US) and they want a notarized signature, I would just about guarantee they wouldn't accept a commissioner of oaths, but would want a real live notary.

You may be able to find someone willing to do it for less than $40, depending on what you need it for... I found this on the web, I'm sure its similar/the same in ontario

Lawyers, students-at-law, judges, members of the House of Commons, members of the Legislative Assembly, and members of the Senate who were residents of Alberta at the time of their appointments are automatically Notaries Public. It is possible for some people, for example lawyers, to be both Commissioners for Oaths and Notaries Public.

Thanks for your response and tip. I just emailed the registry office that the deed would be recorded in. I asked them the question and will wait to see what they say. Otherwise I will look for a student lawyer as you suggested.

Thanks
