The Milton Chamber can certify Certificates of Origin.

Members pay: $30 + HST
Non-members pay: $50 + HST

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document attesting that goods exported in a shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. COs may be requested by customs administrations, importers, freight forwarders or banks for clearance of letters of credit.

All documents presented to the Milton Chamber for certification must first be notarized. Notarization is a process by which a lawyer or a notary public certifies, from a person’s sworn statement, that the facts described in their signed documents are true. An alternative to notarization is the letter of waiver. Along with notarization or a letter of waiver, we also require proof of a company’s registration in Canada with the federal or provincial/territorial government and its annual business license renewal or the like before we certify any documents.
