Did you know that a Commissioner of Oaths is empowered, under provincial legislation, to administer and witness the swearing of oaths or solemn affirmations in the taking of an affidavit for any potential legal matter?
Commissioners of oaths are also empowered to witness any declaration as required under a statute. A commissioner of oaths certifies that the required oath or affirmation or declaration has been properly administered.
Commissioners of oaths do not certify the truth of the statements contained in a document; which remains the responsibility of declarants themselves.
In the province of New Brunswick, a commissioner of oaths must administer the oath or declaration in the manner prescribed by law. This requires that the deponent be physically present before the commissioner of oaths. Also, the commissioner of oaths must be satisfied about the authenticity of the declarant’s identity and signature before a he or she can sign the document themselves.
