Dates of certified documents

I am Australian currently living in Canada with my Canadian partner.
We are heading back to Australia soon to apply for an onshore defacto visa (he will arrive on an evisa to ensure there is no "no further stay').

As we already know we are applying when we get there, we will be getting the Canadian statements written by family & friends here before we leave, therefore they will be signed and dated prior to the date of us arriving in Australia.

Will immi look down on this? Or should we look at getting them to sign and date documents after we have arrived and get them posted to us?

Thanks in advance.

I am not 100% that the eVisa will not have a NFS condition and he may be better to apply for the ETA.
It should not make a huge difference re dating of family statements if they are not of a Canadian statutory form as far as not being witnessed by an official and even if so, I doubt a few weeks or month or so is going to matter.
What you may want to do though is just prepare all the relevant documents/statements and make this trip what it needs to be in using a visitor type visa and that's just a visit.
If your partner decides Australia is to his liking then all those documents/statements could be mailed to you or if with a just in case plan you have mailed them ahead, it could make explaining the use of a visitor visa for intended purpose a little easier rather than having a heap of documents that may convey otherwise.
It is Immigration policy that a visa is to be used for its intended purpose and any evidence otherwise can lead to questions being asked and questions may even be asked of a non Australian accompanying an Australian and even of yourself first and separately, so be prepared.

thanks Wanderer, we will arrive separately through immigration so i have no worries about that. The written statements of the Canadian friends and family will still be certified and dated by and RCMP officer. Along with a copy of his passport & birth certificate.
I think we will have no choice but to all have it predating our arrival in Oz.

Documents like BC and PP etc. can be certified here by just rocking up to the local police station or wherever and so anything not needed for a visit can be posted.
