  • What is a corporation?
    A corporation is a legal entity that can enter into contracts, incur debt, and even own property. Every corporation is comprised of shareholders, directors and officers. When forming a corporation, owners transfer money, property or assets into the corporation in exchange for shares. These owners then become shareholders of the corporation and they can buy or sell their shares without affecting the existence of the corporation.
  • What's a minute book?
    Each corporation is legally required to keep, maintain and regularly update their corporate minute book. This book is the legal history of the corproation starting from its incorporation. Each decision is recorded into the minute book which allows potential investors, the CRA and interested people (for example, a potential buyer) to assess the history of the corporation. If you need to create, re-create, or update your minute book visit our minute book page. In a minute book, you will generally find: Certificate of Incorporation Articles of Incorporation Resolutions Share Certificates Share Registry Shareholder's Register Director's Register Officer's Register
