What is an extra-provincial corporation?

An extra provincial corporation is a body corporate that has been incorporated, amalgamated, or continued outside the jurisdiction of the province where it intends to conduct business.

Which extra-provincial corporations must register?

Every extra-provincial corporation must register under the Business Corporations Act within (30) days after it begins to carry on business.

What constitutes carrying on business?

According to the Business Corporations Act, an extra-provincial corporation carries on business if:

its name, or any name under which it carries on business, is listed in a telephone directory for any part of the province where it intends to conduct business
its name, or any name under which it carries on business, appears or is announced in any advertisement in which an address in the province where it intends to conduct business is given for the extra-provincial corporation;
it has a resident agent or representative or a warehouse, office, or place of business in the province where it intends to conduct business
it solicits business in the province where it intends to conduct business
it is licensed or registered or required to be licensed or registered, under any Act of the province where it intends to conduct business
It is in respect of a public vehicle as defined in the Motor Transport Act, the holder of a certificate of registration under the Motor Vehicle Administration Act, unless it neither picks up or nor delivers goods or passengers in Canada;
it is the holder of a certificate issued by a Canadian province Province Motor Transport Board, unless it neither picks up nor delivers goods or passengers in the province; or it otherwise carries on business in Canada.
The process of Extra-Provincial Registration has three main elements:

First is the Name Search and approval. This search is used to confirm that no one else has a business or registered trademark with a name as, or similar to, the one you have chosen. The name of an incorporated company must end with one of the following designations:

* Limited or Limitee;
* Incorporated or Incorporee or
* Corporation

The following abbreviations of the above are also acceptable:

* Ltd. Or Ltee.
* Inc.
* Corp.

If the name of the company is to be its incorporation number, for example 123456 A.B. Ltd; a name approval is not required and the number will be assigned at the time of incorporation.

Note: Canada corporations (federally incorporations) are exempt from this requirement.

Second. Application of registration completed.

The third element is the fee to file your application for incorporation.
