In British Columbia


Most Canadian provinces have residency restrictions for the board of directors. We do not provide nominee director services, however we can provide incorporation services in provinces which do not have residency restrictions; those provinces are British Columbia and New Brunswick. Companies incorporated in any of those two provinces can then be registered to do business in other provinces as well.

Branch office registration is also available to you in any Canadian province, and you would not need to have a resident Canadian as a director.

For a quotation on branch office registration, please advise of the specific province in which you intend to establish the branch.

A minimum of one shareholder/officer is required, and there are no restrictions on the authorized or issued capital. Shares are normally issued at no par value, and none of the listed jurisdictions has a share issuance tax.
