Ontario Business Central’s Role as a Trusted Portal Partner For the Ontario Government

ontario government partnership

Ontario Business Central is honoured to be a trusted portal partner of the Ontario government. We have worked with the province of Ontario over the last 30 years from the days of standing in long lines, faxing, copying microfiche to today’s advancements in the new Ontario Business Registry (OBR) system.  The Ontario Business Registry system was originally introduced in October 2021 by replacing the ONBIZ system which had been in place for over twenty years.  

Ontario Business Central was asked to be part of the beta testing for the OBR partner portal where we provided recommendations for improvements over the year prior to the full release of the partnership portal for other portal partners.  The partner portal access is restricted to those who have gained approval with  the Ministry of Consumer and Business Services (MCBS) to allow intermediary direct access to the system with recorded transactions.  

We have a unique position in the industry as an online corporate search house where our clients’ demands range from law firms, accounting firms, to the business  community with both new and seasoned entrepreneurs.  Considering our standpoint, the partner portal necessitated flexibility to accommodate a large clientele with diverse needs, offering a comprehensive platform that enables us to efficiently onboard and manage our clients. Our collaboration is aimed at enhancing the accessibility and efficiency of government services for businesses and individuals alike. We are excited to highlight the numerous benefits of partnering with Ontario Business Central and how we offer a more seamless and user-friendly experience for our valued customers.
