Steps to Incorporating:

  2. Corporate Name Creation
  3. NUANS Name Search
  4. Domain Name Creation
  5. Obtain a Domain Name
  6. Complete Articles
  7. File Articles
  8. Seals and Minute Books
  9. Name Protection
  10. Corporate Marketing
  11. Deductions and Taxes
  12. Consider all steps and options

The following pages list steps to creating your Provincial or Federal Corporation in Canada. These range from determining the name of your corporation, to creating an image and publicity for marketing your business, to taxes. To keep the write-up simple, each of these steps is described as an isolated part of the incorporation process. In practice, a step may be accomplished, another step done, and then the previous step returned to. This iterative process could occur, for example, when you are trying to get your corporate name and your domain name to match, since it is unlikely that you will find matching names on your first attempt.

Depending on your particular business, it may not be necessary to actively pursue all the steps considered here. However, you should consider all of them to ensure that a particular step does not apply. Some businesses may also require additional steps.
