Please note:

Since there is no “authentication” agreement between Canada and Austria in place, public documents (e.g. birth certificates, marriage certificates, notarial deeds, university diplomas etc.) issued in one state and to be served in the other state must be legalized/authenticated in line with the procedure below:

This procedure is often called the “full diplomatic legalization procedure.”

Speaking in concrete terms this means that public documents issued in Canada and to be served/used in Austria must first be authenticated by local and/or provincial authorities and then by Foreign Affairs Canada. Thereafter, the Austrian Embassy in Ottawa will legalize the document. Only then may it be used in Austria.

Austrian public documents to be used/served in Canada must be authenticated following ordinary legalization procedures as well. The Authentication Office of the Austrian Foreign Ministry will be the last one in a (long) line of authorities in Austria needed to authenticate your document. Once this process is completed, you might, potentially, need to head to the Canadian Embassy in Vienna to get your final legalization stamp.
