Duties of a Notary Public
A Notary and Public Notaries are public officials who notarize legal documents for the public.
Notaries can also administer and take oaths and affirmations. A Public Notary in addition to having the same powers of a Commissioner of Oaths, can certify that copies of documents are true. Notaries are regulated under the Notaries Act.
Although notaries public are public officials, they are not paid by the government. In Ontario a Notary Public is usually a lawyer or paralegal authorized to perform the duties of a Notary through the Notaries Act and the Law Society of Ontario.
