Avoid delays!

Make sure your diploma replacement request includes all of the following:

  • a completed Request for Replacement Diploma order form with an original signature
  • a Statutory Declaration form completed by a Notary Public
  • the appropriate fee(s) in the form of a Money Order, Bank Draft or Certified Cheque
  • a completed Diploma Delivery Request Form (with payment) if you wish to have your replacement diploma couriered

Please Note: requests which are incomplete will be returned via Canada Post regular mail.

Cost: $80.00 CAD/each diploma

Please note that we can only accept cash, money order, bank draft, or certified cheque (not personal).

In the case of a lost or destroyed diploma, you must complete a Statutory Declaration and have it signed and sealed by a Notary Public*, legally swearing that the original diploma has been lost or destroyed.

(*A Notary Public is a public official who can authenticate documents with a notarial seal. Many lawyers are also Notaries. A Notary Public is not equivalent to a Guarantor. Please contact a local law office in your area.)
