Ontario Professional Incorporation



In the 2000 Ontario Budget, the government announced its intention to allow regulated professionals to incorporate their practices.

Professional incorporation would provide many of the same tax and non-tax advantages enjoyed by other incorporated self-employed individuals. However, professional liability will not be limited through incorporation and shareholders of professional corporations are restricted to members of the same profession.

Establishing a Professional Corporation

Regulated professionals who wish to incorporate their practices should consult their governing body for conditions of incorporation specific to their profession.

Members of the following professions would be eligible to operate a professional corporation:

  • Chartered accountants under the Chartered Accountants Act; certified general accountants under the Certified General Accountants Association of Ontario Act; and lawyers under the Law Society Act (responsibility of the Ministry of the Attorney General).
  • Audiologists, chiropodists including podiatrists, chiropractors, dental hygienists, dental surgeons, dental technologists, denturists, dieticians, massage therapists, medical laboratory technologists, medical radiation technologists, midwives, nurses, occupational therapists, opticians, optometrists, pharmacists, physicians and surgeons, physiotherapists, psychologists, speech language pathologists, and respiratory therapists under the Regulated Health Professions Act (responsibility of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care).
  • Social workers and social service workers under the Social Work and Social Service Work Act (responsibility of the Ministry of Community and Social Services).
  • Veterinarians under the Veterinarians Act (responsibility of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs).
