Document Certification

Document certification is available by The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, the most common being Certificates of Origin. A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document attesting that goods exported in a shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. COs may be requested by customs administrations, importers, freight forwarders or banks for clearance of letters of credit. The issuance of a CO is an important function for chambers of commerce as many countries view chambers of commerce as credible organizations and require that they authenticate documents with their stamp or seal.

All documents presented to us for certification must be submitted using our online portal, TradeCert/Winnipeg.

Please note that your company is solely and legally responsible for the verification of these documents if/when any discrepancies may arise.
