Extra-Provincial Registration in Ontario

Register your corporation to carry on business in Ontario.

If your corporation wants to carry on business in the Province of Ontario, but it is not incorporated as a provincial corporation in Ontario, it must be registered as an Ontario Extra-Provincial Corporation. Extra-provincial registration is also required for federal (Canada) corporations and for non-Canadian corporations that wish to carry on business in Ontario.

Federal corporations and provincially & territorially incorporated corporations from within Canada are only required to file an Initial Notice under the Corporations Information Act (Ontario) in order to register and generate an Ontario Corporation Number. Corporations from outside of Canada are required to apply for an Extra-Provincial Licence under the Extra-Provincial Corporations Act (Ontario) prior to filing the Initial Notice. In conjunction with the Extra-Provincial Licence application, non-Canadian corporations must also appoint an Agent for Service for the purpose of receiving service of legal documents and government correspondence on the company’s behalf.

For federal corporations and corporations incorporated in other Canadian Provinces and Territories, once the Initial Notice is processed, an Ontario Corporation Number will be issued. For non-Canadian corporations, once the extra-provincial registration documents are processed, an Extra-Provincial Licence will be issued. In all cases, the corporation will be required to file an Ontario Annual Return each year in order to keep its registration active and in good standing.
