Not-for-Profit Corporations

Not-for-profit corporations are created as a legal entity pursuant to provincial or federal law.

Carswell Legal Solutions provides support in registering your association, club, charity or volunteer organization across Canada. The not-for-profit registration process varies per province in terms of the necessary steps to take as well as any fees that may apply. In order to register your not-for-profit company, 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 province.

Registering your not-for-profit business will allow you to carry on the following activities in that jurisdiction:

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

Let Carswell Legal Solutions help you conduct a name check, prepare the constituting documents and any additional forms in order to successfully register your not-for-profit company across Canada.

You can send us articles, declarations or other documents that you have already completed or need assistance completing and ask us to verify and file them on your behalf. We also offer name searches, minute books, legal accessories as part of the registration process.
