Register a Foreign Business in Canada
Register a Foreign Business in CanadaIf you wish to register your foreign business in Canada (i.e. a company or business that has been incorporated in another country other than Canada). you will need to decide which province or territory you wish to register in. It will depend on what city in Canada that you wish to conduct business. If you wish to do business across all of Canada you will need to register in each of the 13 provinces and territories of Canada individually.
Some provinces are busier commerce centres such as British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and it may be prudent for you to register in those provinces first.

There may be additional licensing requirements depending on the nature of business you wish to conduct in Canada. If you feel that you wish to register your business right across Canada then please send us a note outlining your plans and the type of business you wish to conduct.
