A registered agent, such as CorporationCentre.ca in association with Staples,
acts as a registered address of the corporation in the province or other jurisdiction of
incorporation. The registered agent provides a registered address for the receipt of service
of government filings (and in certain cases legal papers) and acts as a local contact for
government agencies. The registered agent forwards any such documents and correspondence
to the corporation.
Certain provinces require that a corporation
incorporated in their territory have a registered agent. Corporations often use a professional
registered agent to maintain crucial documents sent from government departments or other
agencies separate from other corporate correspondence. CorporationCentre.ca in association with Staples can provide
registered agent services in all Canadian provinces.
