Corporate Law

Corporate Law can vary by province. A corporation is a legal entity that is separate from its owners or "shareholders". They are formed by filing certificates or articles of incorporation with the provincial securities commission or federally under the Canada Business Corporations Act.  Corporations are governed by the shareholders, who elect the directors, who elect the officers, who actually run the corporation. Because the corporation exists apart from its shareholders, directors, and officers, it continues to exist even if something happens to the people who own and operate it. There are many types of corporations, such as Canadian controlled private corporations, professional corporations, and public corporations.
