Non-routine documents will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Multi-page/high volume requests can be processed the same day provided they are submitted online no later than 3:00 p.m. ET for Full Service. We will certify DIY documents up until 4:30 p.m. ET.
Global Affairs Requirements
Any documents that require authentication from Global Affairs, other than Certificates of Origin, must be notarized by a notary public or commissioner of oaths. Having a letter of waiver on file with us is insufficient.

A non-preferential certificate of origin is a document attesting the origin of goods in a particular shipment, when the goods either do not meet the requirements stipulated in a free-trade agreement, or are destined to a territory that does not have a bilateral or multilateral free trade agreement with Canada
