Company Formation in Canada

INCORPORATION:
Incorporating in Canada is similar to incorporating in the United States; corporations are usually created under a given province or territory. Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories. However, Canada differs in allowing Federal (or Dominion) corporations as well. At least one Director must be resident in Canada and provide his residence address, with the exception of New Brunswick.

QUALIFICATION:
If a corporation is carrying on business it must register in the jurisdiction where it is doing business. When a corporation seeks to do business in a different jurisdiction other than the one in which it was created, it is treated as a foreign corporation and must qualify to do business, generally by filing an Application of Authority. In Canada these corporations are referred to as Extra-Provincial or Extra-Territorial.

The filing for these corporations is called an Application for Extra-Provincial License. Accompanying documents include a good standing certificate and certified copies of charter documents from the home jurisdiction.

Special Representation for Service of Process


The extra-provincial/territorial company is not required to have any directors who are resident in Canada. The company does need a registered agent. Once your corporation is extra-provincially/extra- territorially registered it must still be maintained in the home jurisdiction.
