  • Certificate of status

  • Certificate of Existence
    A certificate of existence indicates that a corporation existed as of a specified date (for ex., November 1, 2014). In other words, the certificate states that on the specified date, the corporation was not dissolved, amalgamated into another corporation, or discontinued and no longer governed by the CBCA.

  • Certificate of Compliance
    Certificate of compliance is issued by Corporations Canada to show that a corporation:
    • exists under the Canadian Business Corporations Act (CBCA), meaning that the corporation has not been dissolved, amalgamated into another corporation, or discontinued so that it is governed by different legislation
    • has filed the required annual returns with Corporations Canada
    • has paid all required fees.

  • Certificate of Continuance
    The corporation becomes subject to the CBCA on the date shown on the certificate of continuance issued by Corporations Canada.
    A continuance allows a body corporate to effectively re-incorporate into another legislation. Instead of incorporating again, the body corporate continues from one legislation into another so that it is governed by that other legislation as though it were incorporated under it. The process results in the corporation being exported out of one legislation and being imported into another.

  • Certificate of Dissolution
    If the certificate of dissolution has already been issued, Corporations Canada cannot revoke the certificate of intent to dissolve. However, reviving the corporation is possible.
    A corporation can be dissolved only when its property has been distributed and its liabilities have been discharged.

  • Certificate of Incorporation
    The Certificate of Incorporation is an official document includes the Canadian company name, company registration number and incorporation date.
