At the Township of Wilmot Administration Office there are members of staff who are Commissioners of Oaths. A Commissioner of Oaths is not a Notary Public and cannot notarize your documents. If you are unsure if your document can be signed by a Commissioner please contact the Deputy Clerk.
In order for a Commissioner to sign your document please keep the following in mind:
There is a $20.00 charge for Commissioner of Oaths services which covers up to three commissionings.
A Commissioner can also sign a travel letter. A travel letter is recommended by the Canadian Border Services Agency when a minor is travelling with only one parent or with any person other than both parents. The parent or parents not travelling with the child can fill out our form at the Township Offices. That form is used to prepare the travel letter which must be signed by the parent or parents not travelling with the child(ren) in front of a Commissioner.
The process will take time to complete and the same $20.00 fee and above conditions apply. Please allow sufficient time and call ahead to ensure a Commissioner will be available. If you have not planned ahead for this, you may not be able to obtain the travel letter and you may compromise your ability to travel across international borders. Accommodations may be made when parents cannot attend the Office at the same time. Under no circumstances will a travel letter be signed by a Commissioner without the appropriate parent(s) present or without valid government issued photo identification.
