Document Certification

Certificates of Origin, commercial invoices, letters for business visas, and more.

The Calgary Chamber can certify a variety of documents, including Certificates of Origin, commercial invoices, and letters for business visas.

What is a Certificate of Origin?

As an international trade document, a Certificate of Origin identifies that goods being exported by shipment to another country have been manufactured or processed in Canada. It is required by customs as one of the key bases for determining duty on the goods being exported.
