Are LLCs Available in Canada?

As a business owner in Canada, you may want to take advantage of the many benefits of incorporating your business. As you research incorporation options, you may come across some roadblocks when it comes to the LLC (Limited Liability Company) designation. This is because no jurisdiction in Canada offers LLC business registrations.

Business owners who choose to incorporate Provincially or Federally may receive several benefits, including limited liability protection, corporate name protection, and tax planning opportunities not available to other types of businesses.

Do you already have an LLC registered outside of Canada? A foreign LLC can be registered to carry on business in one or more Canadian jurisdictions; however, you should consult with your accountant or another tax advisor about any financial and tax implications, as there can be drawbacks to the use of foreign LLCs in Canada in certain situations.
