Legal Professionals Commissioned for Life

B.C. Notaries are proud members of a select group of legal professionals commissioned for life by the Supreme Court of British Columbia. They differ from Notaries in other jurisdictions in that their scope of practice is much broader and more extensive than Notaries in other provinces across Canada (with the exception of Quebec Notaries). B.C. Notaries are trained in non-contentious legal matters, specializing in preparing documents that define and protect your interests in property. B.C Notaries do not argue cases before a judge and do not appear in court. Their role is to act as facilitators, committed to properly preparing and registering your legal documents.

Quality, Personal Service

Buying a house or making a Will can be representative of major life milestones. Although exciting, we understand that making these types of decisions can also  be quite overwhelming. We are here to provide you with quality advice and personalized service to help you with your needs. In addition to preparing and registering your documents, we strive to ensure that you fully understand the legal process and all documents that you sign with us. We will be your advocate and will promise you fair, honest service and valuable advice.

Marcella Barbosa

Marcella Barbosa is a Notary Public commissioned by the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Born in Brazil, Marcella was a licensed lawyer before she immigrated to Canada in 2005 with her husband.
In Canada Marcella studied business and worked in property management for several years where she gained experience in the local real estate market, as well as construction and development practices. After starting a family, Marcella took some time off to care for her two kids. Going back to the legal field was always a dream, and she returned to work as a legal assistant.

After learning about the Notary profession, together with the incentive of her family and friends, Marcella decided to apply for the SFU Master’s Program and was admitted. After the successful completion of a two year program and passing all required statutory examinations, Marcella was commissioned as a British Columbia Notary Public. Practicing “happy law” and helping the community in the most important times of their lives is extremely gratifying.
In her free time, Marcella enjoys exercising and keeping fit, as well as spending time with her husband and kids riding bikes, going to the movies, and traveling.
