Incorporation

Start a Business

Business Registration

A Master Business Licence or Business Registration is the most commonly registered startup across Canada. Registering is a cost effective way to begin a business, but does not hold the same benefits as incorporating. This registration is tied to you personally both for liability and taxation. There is no business name protection available. It is easy to both register and cancel.

Other Incorporation

Not for Profit/Charitable organizations provide the opportunity to support the community. Depending on what you are providing to the community the corporation can be established as a Not For Profit or Charitable Organization. An example of a Not For Profit company is an athletic club. An example of a charitable organization is a religious organization. We offer pre-approved object clauses in both areas to assist you in providing details for your new incorporation and walk you step by step through the process.

Ontario Professional Incorporation’s are exclusive to professional designated individuals with governing bodies. This type of incorporation has restrictions on the business the corporation may carry on or powers the corporation may exercise and the issue, transfer or ownership of shares.

Extra Provincial Licence provides the ability for an existing foreign corporation to branch into the Province of Ontario. The process to complete is similar to the incorporation however you only require a physical address for the business within Ontario and a person who is a resident of Ontario to be an Agent for Service for your corporation.
