Australian consular staff are available to assist Australians who find themselves in trouble overseas.
Information about what assistance officials can provide
In the event of an emergency, Australians in Canada or Bermuda should contact the Australian High Commission or Consulates.
In the event of an after-hours consular emergency in Canada or Bermude call:

Please ensure that the documents relating to notarial services you require from the High Commission / Consulates are presented in the correct form, and that you provide the correct instructions to our staff (for example, on how your signature must be witnessed on the documents).
If you are unsure of the legal requirements relating to the notarial service you require, you should seek independent legal advice.
By providing a notarial service such as authenticating a document, providing a certified copy of a document or witnessing a signature on a document, neither the High Commission / Consulates in Canada endorse, verify or make any statement as to the accuracy, truth, legality or otherwise of the contents of the document or the purposes for which the document may be used.
Neither the Australian Government nor the High Commission / Consulates accept liability for any loss damage or injury arising out of the use of, or reliance on, the document or its contents.
