Canada brings the best mix of what is important to international companies: a diverse and inclusive economy; a skilled and talented workforce; accessible programs to enhance and boost innovation; expansive infrastructure; strong cybersecurity; and a stable, predictable and economic landscape with open access to the world.
Global investors have long seen Canada as an innovative and growing economy that delivers secure returns. In Canada, investors find a business-friendly environment that is open to trade, investment, ideas, and talent, with rock-solid investor protections. As the global economy continues to face uncertainty, investors from around the world seeking a stable, reliable and welcoming environment see Canada as a top investment destination.
Canada provides investors with unparalleled market access. Businesses operating here already benefit from preferential access to a North American market of more than 480 million consumers through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Once the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement takes effect, the additional market access will bring Canada’s free trade access to a total of more than 40 countries – with nearly 1.2 billion of the world’s wealthiest consumers and a combined GDP of $US37 trillion, representing one half of the world’s output of goods and services.
If you are interested in starting commercial operations in Canada and offering products and services to customers in Canada, you need to register your company in the province or provinces where you want to operate. Entrepreneurs and companies interested in starting commercial operations in Canada can do so in two ways. The first is through the registration of a brand new company in Canada and the second way is through the registration of the foreign company extra provincially in Canada.
Company Formations offers fast & easy Canada company registration service and extra-provincial registration services to global entrepreneurs and foreign companies wishing to start operations in Canada.
When you use our Canada company registration services to register your new company in Canada, we take care of the entire process for you including: request for approval of your proposed company name, preparation of the company’s incorporation agreement, preparation of the incorporation applications, obtaining your certificate of incorporation and preparation of your corporation minute book.
Registering a new company in Canada is a five-step process:
Step 1: Request Name Approval and Reservation
To ensure the public is not confused or misled by similar corporate names, new corporate names must be approved by the provincial registries office of your desired jurisdiction of registration. If you choose to use the incorporation number as the company’s name (for example 0123456 A.B. Ltd), you do not need a name approval and reservation. The incorporation number is assigned by the Corporate Registry office at the time the incorporation application is filed.
Step 2: Establish Your Company’s Articles
The articles are the rules for the company, shareholders, directors, and officers and they become part of the company’s formal records.
Step 3: Prepare an Incorporation Agreement
An incorporation agreement must be signed by each person (incorporator) forming the company. Usually, the incorporators will become the shareholders and directors once the company is incorporated.
The agreement becomes part of the company’s records and must contain:
The agreement of each incorporator to take one or more shares of the company The signature of each incorporator opposite their full name and the date each incorporator signed the agreement The number of shares of each class being taken by each incorporator.
Step 4: File Articles of incorporation and other Incorporation Documents
The fourth step is to file your articles of incorporation and other supporting documents with the corporate registry office of your desired jurisdiction of registration.
Step 5: Keep Documents as Part of Your Company’s Records
Once your application is processed and payment received, the corporate registries office of your desired jurisdiction of registration will send you the following documents by email or mail (depending on the notification method you selected):
The original Certificate of Incorporation
A certified copy of the Incorporation Application
A certified copy of the Notice of Articles
A cover sheet that includes the company’s incorporation number and business number
