We sent it to the Canadian government office (responsible for that type of document) and they verified it and sent it to the Mexican Consulate in Ottawa who applied the necessary seals and stamps etc. and they then forwarded it to us here in Mexico.

It was a lengthy process dealing with the bureaucracy from two governments. I hope that your not in a hurry.

We live near Ottawa and we have taken documents for ourselves and overseas Canadian friends into the Department of Foreign Affairs-- now the Department of Global Affairs-- where they have a number of windows for the authenticating of documents like birth certificates, etc. I think there is a small charge, but it is pretty quick and painless.

I believe documents can also be authenticated by mail. I'm sure the details are on their website.

EDIT: Here's an outfit I found online. I know nothing else about them other than what you see on their website.

Actually, you can get a ton of info just by Googling "apostille Canada"

I thought this was strictly a responsibility of the federal govt in Canada? What does the province do other than issue the documents? And then don't they have to go to thte Feds?'

Embassy didnt do it a few months ago, you need to submit long form documents (not wallet sized) to Mexican consulate in province where document was issued to authenticate it.
