To determine whether your corporation is an Ontario corporation you should check the corporation’s Letters Patent and any Supplementary Letters Patent. If you are unable to locate them, you may wish to check our list of Ontario corporations to see if your corporation is included. You can also request microfiche copies of your governing documents from the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services’ Central Production and Verification Services Branch.

If your corporation is not an Ontario corporation, it may be incorporated federally under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act, incorporated provincially under another provincial corporate act, an unincorporated association, a trust or another entity.
