Application for authorization and statutory declaration for the purposes of entry into canada for extended stay – covid 19
We have been seeing this form come up lately. Please note that, in our opinion, the form contains a formatting error. It is not clear where the client needs to sign. Worse, section 5 implies that the notary is supposed to state that the contents of the document are true. It should be the declarant (i.e. client) that states this, not the notary. The notary’s role is to ask the declarant to declare that statement in the notary’s presence. We have had to modify this form to comply with this rationale. We draft a note at the signature sight on the form explaining our modifications. We urge our clients to call and bring this issue to the attention of the recipient.
