When minor children travel with either just one parent or travel without either parents, a written authority is required from the parents to authorize the children to travel and cross any borders. For without such written authorization from the parents or guardian, the child may be refused entry at the border into another country – that would prove devastating for the child. It is strongly recommended that these consent letters be notarized. Visit the Government of Canada website to obtain a form of consent letter. You may modify this consent letter to suit your needs.
Often ICBC or other bodies may require various forms of Statutory Declaration to be sworn under oath before a notary. These documents have to be signed before a Notary, and the Notary needs to confirm the identity of the person and ascertain that the person signing the document clearly understands the contents of the documents. Signing under oath is equivalent to you appearing in a court of law to swear or affirm that what you are about to do is the whole truth and nothing else, but the truth. Any deviation from the truth constitutes perjury.
