Corporate services

Our corporate sector offers all the services required by companies, organizations, limited partnerships, general partnerships, associations, trusts and other forms of entities. 

No matter what the corporate transactions to be accomplished, our professionals and paralegals can prepare all the documents required by your company.

Subsequent to the incorporation and organization of your company, we can monitor its evolution and undertake, as the need arises, any necessary amendments as required by the government authorities, in addition to maintaining the corporate records. We also advise you on the choice of applicable jurisdiction and the choice of a corporate name. Lastly, you can rely on us to produce the annual declarations and other documents required by laws and regulations. 

How we help you:
 

Incorporation and organization of a company: We advise you concerning the type of entity to employ for your business project in accordance with its proposed activity. We also assist you with the process of reserving your corporate name and in the establishment of the legal organization of your new company. 

 

Corporate records maintenance and updates: We offer corporate records maintenance along with update services to ensure that the proper corporate information appears in the registers, in compliance with the provisions of applicable laws.

 

Mergers, dissolution, liquidation and other operations: Our corporate services comprise all the corporate transactions applicable to a company or business corporation. Our professionals and paralegals oversee your interests while following through on the proposed transactions.

The choice between a federally-incorporated organization and a provincially-incorporated company is dictated by many legal and corporate considerations other than the geographical territory where the future company will operate. 

At least 25% of the members of the board of directors of a federally-incorporated organization must be Canadian citizens.

A federally-incorporated organization must be registered in each of the provinces where it carries on its commercial activities, in accordance with the criteria established by each province’s legislation. A provincially-incorporated company must also be registered in the other provinces, to the extent that the company’s activities in a particular province meet the criteria established by that province’s legislation.
