Letters of intent


 In Canada, PIPEDA defines an electronic signature as a symbol in digital format that is attached to an electronic document and applied by a person with an intent to sign. Canada recognizes electronic signatures as having the same legal weight as their paper equivalent and are admissible in court. Every electronic signature is facilitated by digital encryption, linking the 

identity of the person to the transaction, and is evidence of the signer’s intent to agree to its terms. Electronic signatures are used to sign offer letters, sales contracts, permission slips, rental/lease agreements, liability waivers, financial documents, etc. They are legally enforceable in most business and personal transactions in almost every country in the world. Learn more in our eSignature Legality Guide.
