The Commissioners for Taking Affidavits Act empowers municipal clerks and other officials to take various types of declarations and to administer oaths.
The Township of Carling provides a Commissioner of Oath service. We take affidavits and commission oaths and declarations. The Clerk and the Deputy Clerk are commissioners for the municipality. You are responsible for the content and correctness of the document you are getting commissioned.
The fee for commissioning a document is $15.00
Please call us ahead of time to ask if we can help you with your document and to check that a Commissioner of Oaths is available before you come see us.
Please note that a commissioner is not the same as Notary Public. The Township does not currently have a Notary Public on staff. A commissioner can only administer oaths and take affidavits whereas a Notary Public, can commission and certify documents as true copies to verify signatures. If you require a document to be “notarized” as opposed to “commissioned”, the person administering the oath or affidavit is generally a lawyer.
The following documents will not be commissioned:
Available from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
Monday – Friday
