Upon Ontario Extra-Provincial Registration a non-Canadian company receives Ontario Extra-Provincial Licence with Ontario Corporation Number and a status of Ontario Extra-Provincial Corporation. The licence gives rights to set up an office, open a bank account and conduct business in the Province of Ontario and from Ontario with all other Canadian provinces and overseas.

To be registered in Ontario, each non-Canadian company must have an Agent for Service in Ontario, who is a resident of Ontario. Our packages include this service for the first year.

It's important to understand that Canadian extra-provincial registration does not create a separate Canadian legal entity. Therefore, a non-Canadian company registered as Extra-Provincial Corporation in Ontario has no tax obligations in Canada, when the company conducts business outside of Canada.
