Registered Agents

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.
