Notarius, celebrates 25 years with nearly 50,000 digital identities

MONTREAL, June 18, 2021 - Over the past quarter-century, the Montreal-based company Notarius has remained committed to creating the most integrated and legally reliable electronic signature solutions on the North American continent. Initially a small, not-for-profit organization when it was founded in 1996, Notarius’ innovative spirit and strong team saw it through the burst of the dot-com bubble in the 2000s, as well as the 2008 economic crisis, eventually leading the company to see its strongest growth ever today.

“Our digital signature solutions have become vital links in numerous key industries, including the legal domain and the large ecosystem of made up of the engineering, architecture, and construction sectors. Thanks to Notarius' expertise, tens of millions of documents, plans, and certificates of location are produced in electronic format and digitally signed in full compliance with current regulations.”- Claude Charpentier, President and CEO of Notarius.

Canada’s leader in the digital signature sector

Combining exemplarity and innovative design, over the years Notarius has gained the trust and respect of organizations that protect the public across the country.
In partnership with nearly 50 professional associations, including Canada's 12 engineering associations, hundreds of municipal, provincial, and federal agencies, large engineering consulting firms, and major contractors in the energy sector, Notarius manages a total of nearly 50,000 digital identities, making it the leading private company in Canada in the digital signature sector.

Proven technology developed in Canada

Notarius launched its ConsignO Cloud web-based signing platform in 2016, which has since administered more than one million trusted electronic signatures. Notarius competes with major foreign competitors and provides both small and large companies with a Canadian-made ingenious and competitive technological solution.

“At Notarius, we are proud to celebrate the many stable and well-paid jobs we have created over our 25 years in existence. It is a great pleasure for us to contribute to the economic development of the greater Montreal region. We would like to thank our outstanding employees who, thanks to their sense of curiosity and rigour, help us overcome any and every obstacle we encounter.” - Claude Charpentier, President and CEO of Notarius.

Looking forward to 25 more years of digital reliability

While Notarius originally set out to support notaries in their transition to digital technologies in 1996, today the company is a technological leader in Canada. Operating from coast to coast and actively participating in the digital transformation of professionals and organizations in Quebec and Canada, the company expects to continue on the path of accelerated growth in the coming years by exploring new markets and developing new technologies.
