A notary public is a public officer constituted by law (the Alberta Notaries Public Act) to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business. A Notary Public's functions may includes: the administration of oaths and affirmations; the taking affidavits and depositions; the receiving and certifying acknowledgments or proof of such written instruments as deeds, mortgages and powers of attorney; and the ddemanding acceptance or payment of foreign and inland bills of exchange, promissory notes and obligations in writing, and protesting the same for non-payment.

The Notary's signature and official seal renders them acceptable, as proof of the matter attested by him/her, to the judicial or other public authorities in the country where they are to be used. Clients often require notarial services when dealing with overseas matters. A notary public mainly acts as an impartial and legally trained witness to authenticate and certify the execution of documents required or intended for legal purposes.

By virtue of the international status of his/her office, the signature and seal of a Notary is recognised as evidence of a responsible legal officer in most countries of the world.

A notary public is barred from performing certain duties in his/her capacity as a notary, including but not limited to the preparation of legal documents and provision of legal advice. In those circumstances it is appropriate to retain the professional services of a lawyer capable of handling those matters.
