Certified Translations in Canada

If you are submitting non-English or French documents as part of an official application in Canada, then you'd need a Certified Translation.

We explain some of the requirements below.


Official translation requirements in Canada

Foreign documents to be used for official purposes within Canada require a Certified Translation if they are not issued in English or French. A certified translation is where the translator certifies, with their signature and stamp, or with an affidavit, that the translation is a true and accurate reflection of the original document.

Canadian authorities such as the IRCC are usually strict about the documents you are allowed to include as part of your application, and may insist, in most instances, that you include an certified translation for all foreign documents that are not in either English or French.

For your documents to be considered complete, you must send them in with the English or French translation that is either:

  • Signed and stamped by a Canadian certified translator or
  • Includes an affidavit from the translator, signed by a Notary Public.

Translayte can produce both types of certified translations, and your choice of either option should depend on the cost and the specific instructions you have been given – as the requirements may differ based on your circumstances, location, and the agency you are submitting to.


Using a Canadian certified translator

To become a certified translator in Canada, a translator needs to be certified by a member body that belongs to the CTTIC (Canada’s national translation association). To become certified, they usually have to pass several examinations or certification procedures and are usually registered with the body that exists in their province / territory.

A translation produced by a certified translator will be stamped and signed, and also include a photocopy of your original document with their stamp on it. Translations produced by certified translators are accepted as-is, without any further need for an affidavit.

Translayte works with hundreds of certified translators in Canada who can translate from over 60 languages into French or English, and can help produce acceptable translations for your application.


Certified translation with affidavit

Canadian authorities may also accept translations that are completed by professional translators if they include a signed affidavit. The affidavit is signed in front of an authorised Notary Public and includes references to the translated and original document.

Translayte can help produce a certified translation with affidavit, often at a lower cost. To do so, we produce a standard certified translation on our letterhead, and have the statement notarised by an appropriately authorised Notary Public in the US or Canada.

A translation notarised by a Notary Public meets the requirements of the IRCC and other Canadian Authorities and will be accepted.


Translations used abroad, or at embassies

For translations to be used in another country, you may be asked to obtain an Apostille on the original document or obtain a sworn translation from a translator in that country. Translayte produces certified, notarised, sworn and legalised translations accepted globally, and can help ensure your translations are produced appropriately and accepted in the country where you intend to use it.


Where certified translations are required in Canada

Translayte can provide Certified Translations that are accepted by any of the following agencies and organisations in Canada.

  • Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
  • Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
  • Canada Revenue Agency
  • Employment and Social Development Canada

Our certified translations are also accepted by universities, banks, local authorities, courts and foreign embassies based in Canada.
