Overview

Authorized registry agents can provide most registration services for your corporation, trade name or partnership.

Some law firms also provide registrations as part of their professional services to clients.

Registrations are grouped into 3 service levels, depending on the complexity of the service. Some service providers will provide all 3 levels of services, while others may provide only one or 2 levels of service.

Cost

A registry agent will charge a service fee to review and record your information in the Corporate Registry computer system. Service fees are not regulated and may vary from one agent to another. There is also a government fee for certain registrations.
