Advantage of Federal Incorporation:

  • More business name protection and rights throughout the entire country
    • Ability to conduct business under the same name around the whole country, even if another provincially incorporated business is operating under the same name
    • Do not have those same rights with provincial incorporation (No name protection outside of province/territory)

Disadvantage of Federal Incorporation

  • Higher costs and effort
    • Business must still be registered in every province/territory that business will be conducted in
    • More paperwork, including: filings necessary for provinces in which you are registered, as well as for the federal Director of Corporations Branch
    • Higher costs associated with additional paperwork as well as extra-provincial registration

A shareholder is a person who owns share(s) of a company. Shares are representative of ownership interest in a company.

A person under the age of 18 can legally be a shareholder if those shares are gifted to them. Someone under the age of 18 can not purchase shares via a share purchase agreement, as they are not allowed to take on a legally binding contract.
