A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by the Minister of Justice, to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.
A Notary’s duty is to screen the signers of important documents for their true identity, their willingness to sign without duress or intimidation and their awareness of the contents of the document or transaction. Some notarizations also require the Notary to put the signer under an oath, declaring that the information contained in a document is true and correct.
