Corporate Registration in Canada
Located in the north of North America, Canada features the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean along its east and west, respectively. On its south lies the U.S., while on its north sits the Arctic Ocean. In addition, the entire country is comprised of 10 provinces and three territories. As one of the top seven Western industrialized countries, Canada enjoys comparatively advanced manufacturing and developed high-tech industries. Resource-based industries, primary manufacturing, and agriculture are all major economic pillars of the country.
Two ways to register a company in Canada:
1.      Following registration as a limited liability company under the federal statute, the company shall be incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act. As a result, the federal company can conduct its business anywhere in Canada, subject to extra-provincial registration requirements in each province or territory. Its registration fees are also comparatively expensive, so SMEs in general will be incorporated under the provincial business act within their desired province or territory.
2.      Following registration as a limited liability company under separate provincial or territorial statutes, the company is only permitted to conduct business within the province or territory of incorporation, but free from any restrictions regarding its business type. As a result, most SMEs favor this option.
3.      Corporate registration in Canada: no capital verification is required before a legal company is incorporated and begins its business activities. For companies incorporated in Canada, there are three forms, namely, sole proprietorship, partnership, and corporation.
I. Information to be provided by the client:
