Extra-Provincial Registrations

Pursuant to the Extra-Provincial Corporations Act for each province, if you would like to conduct business in any other province or territory you must register extra-provincially in the province in which you will be doing business. The extra-provincial registration process varies per province in terms of the necessary steps to take as well as the fees that may apply.

In order to register the company in other provinces successfully, you need to order a NUANS name search report or provincial name search report (depending on specific requirement in each province) in order to determine the availability of the company name in that jurisdiction. Keep in mind thought that it is possible that your corporation name may already exist in other provinces, unless federally incorporated.

Registering your business extra-provincially will allow you to carry on the following activities in the specific jurisdiction:

  • Hire employees
  • Have facilities or offices
  • Open up bank accounts

If the extra-provincial registrations are domestic (within Canada), you are not required to file annual returns in the extra-provincial provinces, filing the annual return for your home province will suffice.

The filed extra-provincial registration(s) will also form part of the minute book you are required to maintain for your corporation.
