Registration Types in Canada

Corporation Registrations

Provincial Considerations

Corporate registrations are very popular in the Provinces of New Brunswick, Alberta, British Columbia and now in Ontario. In July 2021 Ontario repealed its local director requirements: no longer require local resident director on company board of directors.  It now puts it on par with the Provinces of New Brunswick, Alberta and British Columbia where there is no requirement for corporations to appoint local Canadian directors.

A partnership occurs when two or more individuals  or entities enter into an agreement to form a company to do business. There are, Limited Partnerships and Limited Liability Partnerships. Partnership registration is available in the Province of British Columbia (LLP) and Ontario (LP). A partnership is not a separate legal entity and therefore, it is not taxable at the partnership level. Profits flow directly to partners.

Internal Considerations and Consultation

Branches or Subsidiary

Intelligent Decision-Making

The two most common structures are to operate in Canada via a branch or to incorporate a Canadian subsidiary. A branch is not a separate legal entity, but is an extension under an already existing company operating in another jurisdiction. Upon registration the branch will have rights to conduct business in Canada and access to bank accounts.
