Forms of Notary Public Acknowledgments

Clients and lawyers in Nigeria often ask us what are the forms of ‘Ontario Notary Acknowledgments’, ‘Notary Statements for Ontario’ and ‘Notary Acknowledgement Forms Ontario’.   The simple answer to this is that they are largely the same as in Nigeria (which is a common law tradition country), except that ‘state’ should be changed to ‘Canada’ and ‘county’ should be changed to ‘Town/City’.   Jurats are also fine to remain in the format used for notaries in Nigeria.

We have helped hundreds of Nigerian and non-Nigerian citizens with their Nigeria Notary requirements.
