Commissioner of Oaths

A Commissioner of Oaths is an individual who is authorized by law to witness signatures for certain documents such as affidavits and statutory declarations. The Clerk’s Office provides the services of a Commissioner of Oaths during the hours listed below. We recommend you call the Town’s Clerk’s Department at 705-435-3900 or 905-729-0057  in advance to ensure there is a Commissioner of Oaths available when you come in for your commissioning. At the same time we will help you determine if the Commissioner is authorized to sign your particular document(s) and what the applicable fee will be.

Please note that we are not Notary Public’s.

Please bring in your complete document to be commissioned but do not sign it until the Commissioner is available to witness your signature.

In order to have your document commissioned all parties required to sign the document must be present and must provide valid photo identification.

Location: 10 Wellington Street East, Alliston
Commissioning Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please note we are closed on Statutory Holidays
Commissioning Fee: $10.00 as set out in the Town’s Fees & Charges By-law. Payable by cash or debit

We recommend that wills, living wills, power of attorney, divorce, separation or custody agreements be taken to a lawyer or notary’s office as our commissioner will not sign these documents.
