Covid-19

Our Covid-19 Response

All of our Notaries will remain masked, despite the lack of a provincial masking mandate. We politely ask (not require) that you continue to wear your masks at our offices for the time being. Our offices are small and it is at times difficult to maintain adequate distance.

We take your and our staff’s safety very seriously. We have implemented many measures throughout the pandemic to mitigate everyone’s risk. And it seems that we have been successful because despite meeting with thousands of individuals, so far, none of our offices, notaries, or staff have contracted the virus. Nonetheless, we remain vigilant and continue to implement measures listed below.

What We Are Doing?

  • LOCAL ASSESSMENT – We assess the level of risk on a city-by-city basis. Some of our offices open earlier than others as some of our cities are more impacted than others. We don’t reopen an office until we assess that it is safe to do so.
  • ENCOURAGE ONLINE SERVICE – We continue to encourage clients to use our online service when possible. This reduces the number of clients that attend our offices.
  • AIR PURIFIER – All of our offices are equipped with a Hepa Certified Air Purifier that is capable of capturing microdroplets which may carry the Coronavirus.
  • PLEXIGLASS PARTITION – All of our offices are equipped with a desktop plexiglass divider between the notary’s section of the office and the client.
  • HAND SANITIZER – All of our office contains hand sanitizers for the Notary as well as for the client.
  • EQUIPMENT SANITIZATION – We sanitize surfaces and payment machines.
  • MASKS – All of our notaries wear masks when serving clients.
  • MAX CAPACITY – We only allow a maximum of 2 people in our office, in addition to the notary, at any one time.
