Commissioning Oaths and Affidavits

Some examples of affidavits include:

  • Affidavits for insurance claims, including stolen vehicles
  • Affidavits of service
  • Affidavits for name changes
  • Affidavits to transfer ownership of vehicles, including Sworn Statements for Family Gift of a Used Vehicle in the Province of Ontario
