Notaries in Quebec

The notarial profession exists all over the world except in most countries formerly part of the British Empire. The Chambre des notaires du Québec belongs to the International Union of Latin Notaries. Approximately 60 countries are members of the organization, including France, Japan, Mexico, etc.

In Quebec, there are currently more than 3,200 notaries; they can be found in almost every municipality in the province. Although most notaries are in the private practice of law, they may be found more and more frequently in public and para-public organizations. They are also present in large corporations, trust companies and financial institutions.

Throughout your life, you are called upon to make important decisions of a legal nature: marriage, civil union, divorce, the financing and purchase of a property, the creation of a business, the preparation of a will, etc.

Faced with a multitude of laws of ever-increasing complexity, it is impossible for you to evaluate the legal consequences of such decisions. Because of his legal training, the notary can help you make good choices.

As your legal adviser,

  • your notary will analyze and synthesize all the information received and evaluate its relevance
  • your notary will propose various solutions to facilitate your decision-making
  • his recommendations will be primarily directed toward reconciliation and agreement between the various parties concerned.

Evaluating proposals, giving advice and respecting the wishes of those involved: these are the notary’s roles.

In addition to his role as a legal advisor, the notary is a public officer recognized by the state. He confers on his deeds the character of authenticity. The notarial deed makes proof before any court of justice of its content, the accuracy of its date and the veracity of the signatures. The original of the notarial deed is kept by the notary in his office, safe from loss or destruction and always available to the parties in the form of true and authentic copies.

As a public officer, the notary must remain impartial and inform all the parties to a deed of their respective rights and obligations. They are thereby assured of giving informed consent.

The notary is a trained legal professional and ensures that the wishes of parties to a notarial deed do not conflict with the law. He is also a specialist in preventive law and drafts deeds, using clear and precise terms to lessen the risk of errors of interpretation.
