The Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects Selects Notarius as its Exclusive Partner to Provide Trusted Digital Signatures to its Members

Notarius is proud to announce that its trusted digital signature solution, CertifiO, has been selected by the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects.

“We’re very pleased to welcome MALA as the latest association to trust us with their digital transformation” says Claude Charpentier, CEO at Notarius. “This partnership clearly shows that MALA is a forward-thinking association making a conscious effort to remain current with industry trends.”

“It is the primary purpose of the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects Inc. to advance, promote and advocate the profession of landscape architect in the Province of Manitoba, and regulate standards of professional practice and conduct consistent with the need to serve and to protect public interest.” states Janet Thomas, Executive Director of MALA.


A leading expert in electronic signatures, digital signatures and long-term document reliability since 1998, Notarius is the only Canadian firm that issues trusted signatures recognized by Adobe (Adobe Approved Trust List – AATL) and eIDAS (electronic IDentification Authentication and trust Services). Notarius’ digital signature solutions are currently recognized and used by more than 35 professional associations across Canada, allowing thousands of professionals to sign and authenticate electronic documents with the same legal value as hand-signed paper documents.


The Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects Inc. (MALA) is committed to protecting public interest and maintaining the highest standard of professional practice. Although use of a digital seal is not mandatory, it is a reliable option for members of the Association to ensure the origin, integrity, authenticity, and longevity of their documents. It also affords the Association an important opportunity to prevent title misuse. MALA is pleased to partner with Notarius for this initiative.
