Corporations Canada

Corporations Canada allows Canadians and businesses to incorporate at the federal level in accordance with Canadian laws, such as the Canada Business Corporations Act, the Canada Corporations Act, the Boards of Trade Act and the Canada Cooperative Associations Act, regulations and several corporate laws governing federal companies (with the exception of financial intermediaries). It also issues and registers official documents under the Great Seal of Canada. The program’s main lines of business include incorporation and related services (such as amalgamation or corporate charter amendments), the dissolution of corporations, rulings on the use of corporate names, the collection and dissemination of information on federal companies, and compliance and enforcement activities related to the statutes it administers. This program’s activities mostly affect Canadian businesses, not-for-profit organizations and other corporate entities.
