Notary Services

A notary public (“Notary”) is an individual who can act as an official witness to the execution (signing) of legal documents. A Notary can also attest that documents are exact replicas of the original. A Notary can also administer oaths, solemn affirmations, and declarations, which are commonly used in affidavits and statutory declarations.

OUC’s notary service requires that individuals provide two pieces of government-issued identification and sign in the physical presence of the Notary. It is important to note that a Notary will not review the content of your documents or provide any advice beyond the authentication of the original documents and verification of the signatory’s identity.
