Hi @Toqual
A quick Google of each term should guide you in the right direction.
In summary:
  • Both are written statements.
  • A statutory declaration is used by a person to declare a statement to be true.
  • In contrast, an affidavit is used by a person in a legal proceeding to set out their evidence.
Hope this helps.
