Streamline Your Canadian Expansion: A Guide to Telecom Subsidiary Incorporation & Licensing

Non-Canadian company looking to expand into Canada’s telecommunications sector? Our comprehensive guide outlines the incorporation process, telecommunications licensing requirements, associated costs, and anticipated timelines to help streamline your expansion process.

Company Incorporation

The initial step in establishing your Canadian subsidiary is the process of incorporation. By incorporating, you create a distinct legal entity separate from your parent company. This offers various benefits, including limited liability protection for your parent company and improved access to financing opportunities. Our expert team can facilitate the incorporation process, typically completed within 3 business days, for a fee of USD $1970.

Telecommunications Licensing

Following incorporation, your subsidiary must register with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to provide telecommunications services legally. This entails submitting requisite applications and obtaining the necessary licenses. Telecommunications services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and internet service provision (ISP) necessitate a CRTC license. Our team is equipped to guide you through this crucial step.

CRTC Registration Fee

The fee for acquiring telecommunications business licenses and registration stands at USD $2000.

Important Note on Licensing Timeframes

It’s essential to note that while our internal processing typically takes 3-5 business days to finalize and submit your application, the CRTC operates on a separate timeframe for license issuance. This typically spans an additional 5-10 business days, contingent on their current workload.

Total Cost and Timeline

The combined cost for both incorporation and telecommunications licensing amounts to USD $3970. The overall timeline for completing both processes ranges from 8 to 15 business days, contingent upon the CRTC’s processing schedule.
