What is a Commissioner for Oaths?

A Commissioner for Oaths is a person authorized to take your oath, declaration or affirmation when you sign an affidavit or a statutory declaration. A Commissioner for Oaths does not certify that the statements being made in the affidavit or statutory declaration are true, but only certifies that an oath or affirmation has been administered properly. If the Affidavit or Statutory Declaration is to be used outside of Alberta, you will likely need to take the oath or affirmation before a Notary Public.

The Alberta Commissioner for Oaths Act sets out the rules regarding Commissioner for Oaths.
