We only legalize Canadian documents. We legalize the signatures of the documents and we do not review or approve the content of those documents.
Canada it is not member of the "Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents". For more information as to its Members, click here. So, Canadian documents -private or public- must be legalized by an Argentine Consulate.
Private legal documents must be signed and sealed by a Canadian lawyer, Notary Public or Commissioner. The most common private document is known as Power of Attorney whereby you authorize a third party to act on your behalf. As well, personal contracts between individuals. Medical reports must be certified by a Canadian lawyer, Notary Public or Commissioner or by a representative of the relevant provincial medical association. See this link.
Original documents issued by Federal or Provincial Authority (public) must be signed by an Official of the respective government. For example, documents issued by Vital Statistics, Department of Agricultural Affairs, Attorney General Office, Chamber of Commerce, etc.
Legalization of Canadian Certificates of Birth, Marriage, Divorce and Death:
