Virtual Witnessing

In order to help flatten the curve the OCA is currently offering Virtual Witnessing of Statutory Declarations. This requires making a video call so you will need a smart phone or a computer with a camera. There are many types of video conferencing apps like Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Hangouts, Viber, GoogleMeet. We will contact you to determine the best option for the call.

This is a free service for OCA Members.
During the COVID Lockdown Members can contact one of the commissioners by email during business hours (8:30am - 4:00pm), or

Non-members would need to purchase a Virtual Witnessing pass at $17.70 + HST for each document witnessed.

What you need to do for the call:
  1. Provide your photo ID
  2. Focus the phone/camera on your UNSIGNED page while you sign your document
  3. Scan to the person you are speaking with (within 10 minutes please)
  4. We will sign and scan back to you
  5. If necessary, place your copyright seal on as the LAST step, it will be better quality this way if you are sending this document electronically to the contractor or owner.
If you need more copyright seals place your order at: under CCDC 9 "copyright seals"
