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. Members can call to arrange for witnessing at 613-236-0488
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:
- Provide your photo ID
- Focus the phone/camera on your UNSIGNED page while you sign your document
- Scan to the person you are speaking with (within 10 minutes please)
- We will sign and scan back to you
- 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.
