Common Use of Ontario Limited Partnerships

An Ontario limited partnership (LP) is a partnership among persons carrying on business in common. It is composed of a general partner (or partners) and one or more limited partners. The limited partners benefit from limited liability.

In an Ontario Limited partnership, management is conducted by the general partner(s), who is/are fully liable for all debts, liabilities, and obligations of the Limited partnership. The liability of the limited partners is restricted to the amount of money or interest they have invested in the Limited partnership.
