Incorporating in Canada

We are incorporation specialists.  We can have you up and running in no time.  We will handle the name clearance of your proposed name with the government in the province in which you wish to register and file your articles fast and accurately.  We understand how these Ministries work and what is required in order to have your articles accepted.    We can also assist you with the set up of your minute book.

Canadian Due Diligence Searches

We perform due diligence searches for Canadian companies and individuals for all jurisdictions in Canada. When you purchase our service we will provide you with a summary report of the results of the combined searches.


We can handle the registration of your partnership.  As part of our service we will pre-clear your name in the province in which you are registering and, as well, right across Canada.  This will ensure your proposed partnership name is available for use in Canada.

Certificate of Status, Compliance & Good Standing for Canadian Companies

A certificate of status can be obtained for any registered company. These certificates are not issued for sole proprietorships or partnerships or business names. Sometimes a certificate of status is called a certificate of good standing or a certificate of compliance but they are all the same type of document.

Register a Foreign Business in Canada

If you wish to register your foreign business in Canada (i.e. a company or business that has been incorporated in another country other than Canada). you will need to decide which province or territory you wish to register in.

Sole Proprietorship Registration
