Lithuania and Canada are exchanging documents when the document has been issued by a competent Canadian authority and is planned to be used in Lithuania through legalization.

The Canadian document is required to be authenticated at Global Affairs Canada, after that – at the Embassy of Lithuania to Canada. If the document is issued in Lithuania, authenticate it in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, then in Global Affairs Canada.
