How to register

If you have relatives or partners who are Canadian residents and live in Canada, you have many options. As long as one of them is willing to act as your director, you can easily register a corporation in the province where your director resides.

However, if you do not have any Canadian directors, your choices are limited. In the past, you had to partner up with another person in order to do business in Canada. This was complicated, risky, and caused many difficulties.

Now Business Development Centre has a solution for you.

What our specialist created is a 100% risk free solution where you keep the entire control of your business. No need for partners or directors. You can act as the sole director and shareholder of the business.

Here are the benefits:

  • You become the owner of a formal Canadian legal entity
  • You keep 100% of control and decision making responsibility
  • You can be the only person in the corporation acting as director, president, secretary, treasure and shareholder of the corporation
  • There are no requirements for minimum authorized capital ($100.00 would be sufficient)
  • There are no restrictions on issued capital
  • You can receive mail in Canada and forward it to anywhere in the world
  • You can have Canadian email address, business website and own Dot CA domain name
  • You can have a Canadian telephone and fax service

We also assist our clients with managing the business from the accounting and tax point of view.
