Through the course of your business dealings, a Certificate of Status may be requested for various reasons. A Certificate of Status may be requested by financial institutions or the governing body of an existing professional corporation in Ontario. If you’re branching out into a new jurisdiction, a Certificate of Status may be required to set up a physical location in a foreign jurisdiction.
When the Certificate of Status is generated, it provides three main classifications for the current status of a corporation. They can be either: Active, Dissolved or In Default.
With these two simple pieces of information of information, we are able to retrieve the Certificate of Status for your corporation within minutes and email you the results.
There are some business types we cannot provide a Certificate of Status for in our databank.
