TRAVEL CONSENT LETTERS
The Canadian government strongly recommends that children carry a consent letter if they are travelling abroad alone, with only one parent/guardian, with friends or relatives or with a group. For the purposes of this consent letter, a child is defined as anyone who is under the age of majority (19 years old in British Columbia).
A consent letter is not a legal requirement in Canada, but it can simplify travel for children, as it may be requested by immigration authorities when entering or leaving a foreign country or by Canadian officials when re-entering Canada. The letter demonstrates that children have permission to travel abroad from parents or guardians who are not accompanying them.
A sample consent letter is available on travel section on the Government of Canada website.
You can download the pdf document and fill out prior to your appointment. The parent(s) who is consenting to the travel will need to sign the document in front of the Notary Public.
AFFIDAVITS / STATUTORY DECLARATIONS
An affidavit is a written or printed statement of fact, made voluntarily, and confirmed by the oath or affirmation of the party making it. Therefore, an affidavit is typically taken before a notary or lawyer to administer oaths or affirmations. A statutory declaration is a document that formalizes matters to be made known publicly. It is a solemn statement made by plaintiff or witnesses instead of the oath, but equally binding.
If you need a Affidavit or Statutory Declaration notarized, bring in the document and two pieces of government ID.
