  • GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Notarization

    As a matter of policy and for reasons of liability, the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce requires that all documents must be notarized before Chamber staff can stamp/sign it.  If notarization is required, the client must ensure that this is done before the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce can proceed with the certification.

    Notarization is  a process by which a lawyer etc. (i.e., someone who can take sworn statements) certified from a person's sworn statement that the facts described in his/her signed documents are true.

    Notarization should be marked with an original legal seal, which is usually raised, dated and signed. Some notarization, however, is done with a stamp which is acceptable as well.

     

  • Letters of Waiver 

    Exporters that frequently have documents certified often find the notarization process costly and time consuming.  An alternative to notarization of documents is through a Letter of Waiver obtained from the shipper (i.e., manufacturer or exporter) or his/her agent.

    The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce allows companies that are frequent users of our service to place a Letter of Waiver on file stating that they take responsibility for the documents that they presented.  These waivers must be renewed every two years. 

    Please complete and have notarized the appropriate form below:

     

  • Business Registration

    In addition, the Chamber also requires a duly notarized copy of the organization's business registration (describing your operations) with the Federal or Provincial Government, or copy of of annual business license renewal.
