The Corporate Registry issues certificates to confirm changes to a business name, articles or status. Certificates are provided in electronic (PDF) format so they can be easily downloaded, saved and forwarded. They are verified with digital signatures that protect their authenticity.
The blue bar at the top of each certificate confirms that the certificate was signed by the Registry and has not been modified since it was created. The bar reads, ““Certified by Saskatchewan Director of Corporations <firstname.lastname@example.org
>, Information Services Corporation, certificate issued by GlobalSign SHA256 CA for Adobe.”
If the certificate has not been signed by the Registry, you will see a yellow warning icon instead of the blue bar. The icon indicates the document cannot be authenticated.
If the certificate has been altered in any way since it was certified, the blue bar will be replaced with a red error icon. This icon also indicates an integrity issue with the document.
