Commissioner of Oaths – Services

A commissioner for oaths can’t act as a notary public. However, a notary public can act as a commissioner for oaths.

Commissioners for oaths can:

  • administer oaths
  • take and receive affidavits, affirmations or declarations
  • attest the oaths, affidavits, affirmations or declarations

Signature and stamp

A commissioner for oaths – when acting as such – shall, on each document they sign, print or stamp beside their signature so it’s easy to read:

  • their name
  • the words “A Commissioner for Oaths in and for Alberta”
  • if appointed – the expiry date of their appointment
  • if they are acting by virtue of office or status – the office or status which applies to them
