Administering Affidavits and Statutory Declarations

An affidavit is a written description of facts that is sworn or solemnly declared to be true.  An affidavit is usually made in the context of court proceedings. 

A statutory declaration is similar to an affidavit, except it is usually drafted for purposes other than court proceedings.  It is a solemn declaration authorized by the Canada Evidence Act and the Ontario Evidence Act and is used to assert the truth of any fact or facts or of any account rendered in writing.  The declaration is of the same force and effect as if made under oath and therefore has value as evidence.

Some common statutory declarations that Citizenship and Immigration Canada may require are:

  • statutory declaration of common-law
  • Solemn Declaration Concerning a Lost, Stolen, Destroyed or Never-Received Permanent Resident Card (PR Card)
  • statutory declarations confirming identity
  • statutory  declarations confirming a document has been lost or stolen

Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union

A statutory declaration of common-law union is a form that Citizenship and Immigration Canada may require an applicant for sponsorship, an applicant for permanent residence, or an applicant for temporary residence, to complete.  The Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union is used to determine the applicants' eligibility in connection with an application for sponsorship, an application for permanent residence or an application for temporary residence.

  • The statutory declaration of common-law union must be solemnly affirmed by both the applicant and the applicant's common-law partner.
  • The commissioner of oaths or notary public does not certify that the statements in the Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union form are true.  Rather, the commissioner of oaths or notary public only certifies that the solemn declaration has been administered (commissioned).  No legal advice is given during a commissioning of an oath.
  • When attending a commissioner of oaths or notary public's office the Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union form being commissioned should be complete but not signed. The document should be read and understood by both the applicant and his or her common-law partner. 
  • Both the applicant and common law partner must be present and make the solemn declaration in front of a person who is qualified to take oaths, such as a commissioner for taking affidavits or a notary public.
