Corporate Search Services


Corporate Search Services and Registration

Searches for existing corporations will show such public information as address, directors, shareholders and status. You may also search for owners of trade names and partnerships.

A new system was implemented in 1997 that enables companies to incorporate more easily than in the past. Accredited service providers are able to examine your documents for completeness and compliance to the law and enter your information electronically. Processing that sometimes took days in the past can now generally be done while you wait. The government will no longer provide corporate registration services except in the most complex types of transactions. The government will, however, still have ownership of all the information that is collected and stored on the new database. Strict security measures have been implemented to protect the integrity and security of all data collected.
