What is an Oath?

Generally speaking, an oath is a solemn promise, either to do something or that something is true. It is the way a person signifies that they are bound in conscience to act faithfully and truthfully. An oath usually includes an appeal to God, or to a sacred object, to witness the person’s words and to impose punishment if the person does not act truthfully. Under the Interpretation Act, “oath” includes an affirmation, a statutory declaration or a solemn declaration made under the British Columbia Evidence Act or the Canada Evidence Act.

What is an Affirmation?

An affirmation is a solemn and formal declaration that an affidavit is true or that a person will tell the truth.

What is an Affidavit?

An affidavit is a statement of facts made in writing, which is confirmed by the oath or affirmation of the person making it before someone who has the authority to administer an oath or affirmation.

What is a Statutory Declaration?

Like an affidavit, a statutory declaration is a statement of facts made in writing. The statement is verified by the solemn declaration of the person making the statement. Statutory declarations may be required pursuant to various statutes. The form of a statutory declaration is mandated by the Canada Evidence Act and the British Columbia Evidence Act, as follows:

I, [name], solemnly declare that [state the facts declared to], and I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing it to be true and knowing that it is of the same legal force and effect as if made under oath.
