What can I do for you?
Greetings from Gerald. J. Yang, ATIO/CTTIC Certified Translator (Chinese<=>English), Ministry of Attorney General (MAG) Fully-Accredited Court Interpreter (Mandarin).
Mr. Yang is also a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) and Commissioner of Oaths/Affidavits.
Since ATIO is the professional body in Ontario mandated by law (Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario Act, 1989) to certify translators and interpreters, ATIO certified translators have the statutory authority to provide "certified translation" of all kinds of documents for official purposes, including but not limited to:
All documents originally in Chinese but intended for official use in Ontario/Canada, e.g. driver's license, marriage or divorce certificates, household register (Hukou), diplomas, certificates and and transcripts; all CIC-purposed documents, including personal IDs, police clearances, financial documents, passport stamps (for PR renewal or citizenship application), etc.;
Informative, educational and promotional literature for governments and public/private entities;
All kind of certificates (birth, marriage, divorce, death, diploma, degree, trade, professional, etc.);
Corporate and business-related documents, e.g. contract, agreement, etc.
Generally, "certified translation" of documents performed by ATIO certified translators of the right designation has legal validity on its own right without needing "notarization", unless otherwise specified.
ATIO certified translators are designated official translation provider by most government entities including Ministry of Transportation (MTO), Ministry of Health and Long-term Care/OHIP, Ministry of Immigration and Citizenship (MIC), etc.
ATIO certified translators are also designated or preferred translation provider for academic credentials by most professional/regulatory bodies, including but not limited to:
