Get a document verified

The Commissioner of Yukon can be asked to authenticate the signature of a Yukon notary public or Justice of the Peace on your official documents. Examples of official documents are birth certificates, marriage certificates or adoption paperwork. The Commissioner cannot authenticate the official documents.

The Commissioner provides this service free of charge.

To have the signature of a Yukon notary public or Justice of the Peace authenticated, bring the document with their signature and seal to the Office of the Commissioner. You do not need an appointment.

The Commissioner will:

  • authenticate the signature of the notary or Justice of the Peace on your official document;
  • give you a document confirming this; and
  • give you back your official document.

The role of the Commissioner is not to verify the contents of your documents. The Commissioner's role is only to confirm that the notary public or Justice of the Peace who has stamped and sealed the document is an active registered Yukon notary.

Office of the Commissioner:
412 Main Street
Whitehorse, Yukon Y1A 2B7
