                                  A CORPORATION UNDER THE
                          BUSINESS CORPORATIONS ACT (______________)

The information to be gathered by this checklist should allow you to incorporate under the
Business Corporations Act and prepare the necessary documents to organize the corporation.

Name of Corporation:
Is the corporation to be a numbered corporation?          Yes               No
If no, what name? (in case the first choice is not available, you should have 3 choices. NOTE: The
corporation’s name must contain a “descriptive element”, such as “Consulting”, “Engineering”, etc. and a
“legal element”, i.e. “Inc.”, “Corporation”, etc.) You must conduct a NUANS search through a Registry in
order to search and reserve the name.

Will the corporation be operating under a trade name?            Yes             No
If yes, you will need to reserve the trade name. What is the proposed trade name?


Registered & Records Office Address:
A corporation must maintain both a Registered Office and a Records Office address within the province
of incorporation. Usually it is most convenient to have both addresses at the same location. The
Registered Office is the address at which documents can be served on the corporation, and is most often
the address of the corporation’s solicitors. The Records Office is the address at which the corporation’s
Minute Book is kept, and must be accessible during normal business hours to the shareholders, directors
and any other party authorized to review the corporate records. NOTE: Postal codes must be included in
the address. A box number or rural route number is unacceptable - if a street address is unavailable,
please provide the legal description of the land.
