Incorporate a New Ontario Company

A NUANS® report dated no more than 90 days is mandatory for named Ontario incorporations. Please ensure that you have an up-to-date NUANS® Report before proceeding. NUANS® Reports can be ordered here. This step is not required for numbered corporations.

Before you incorporate, did you know:

  • A business corporation must include a legal element in its name (LIMITED, INCORPORATED or CORPORATION).
  • An Ontario corporation must maintain a registered office in Ontario
  • A non-offering corporation must have at least one director.
  • A business corporation must issue shares.
  • A corporation is required to maintain a minute book.
  • A corporation must file an Initial Notice and Annual Returns.
  • A corporation must register any other business names it uses.

Understanding the Pre-Defined Sample

For your convenience, eCore is pleased to provide you with the option of purchasing a completed set of Articles of Incorporation. The pre-defined Articles of Incorporation include standard legal precedents compliant with the Ontario Business Corporations Act.

When you choose this option, you only need to supply variable data such as the corporate name, address, director and incorporator’s name(s) and address(es). The relevant precedents will be populated in the appropriate sections based on your selection from the 2 types of corporate structures offered. You may still edit the pre-defined data if required.

Two templates are available – simply select the option that matches your corporate structure:

  • Common shares only
  • Common and preference shares

(If your corporate structure does not fall into one of the above categories, or if you wish to use your own custom precedents, please selection the option “My own data”.)
