Need some help with a legal issue, but you’re not sure who to ask?
In BC, you can use a notary public (often called a BC Notary, to distinguish them from notaries in other jurisdictions), or a lawyer, depending on the work you need help with.
In other jurisdictions a notary public may only be able to put you under oath, or certify something for you. In BC, notaries have a fairly wide range of powers, and can do much more for you.
Here is a summary of what BC Notaries and lawyers can do for you:
