A Canadian subsidiary can be formed in Canada either under the federal laws of Canada or the laws of one of Canada’s provinces or territories. The laws applicable to corporate entities in each of these jurisdictions are generally consistent, but there are some important distinctions (some of which are set out in greater detail below).
Generally, Canadian subsidiaries are formed as limited liability corporations, but certain provinces (including British Columbia, Alberta, and Nova Scotia) provide an alternative form of corporate entity: the unlimited liability company.
Unlimited liability companies are mainly chosen to facilitate favorable tax outcomes. You can also carry on business through a subsidiary formed as a partnership, trust or other types of entity, but special considerations may apply. Corporate law in certain Canadian jurisdictions requires that the records of a corporation be kept in the jurisdiction of formation.
