Oaths and life certificates
Due to COVID-19, the City Clerk’s Office is currently unable to safely issue life certificates or conduct oaths while complying with government directives. We understand the potential inconvenience caused by this situation, but the safety of our employees and the public remains our priority.
We invite you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 450 672-4444, and leave us your name, contact information and the specific details of your request. As soon as the situation allows us to resume this service, we will contact you.
We invite you to follow the evolution of the situation on our website.
Some City Clerk’s Office employees are authorized to administer oaths and issue life certificates, by request. We suggest that you telephone the City Clerk’s Office to make an appointment with a Commissioner for oaths. There is a fee of $5 per request.
