The Canada Business Corporations Act provides that at least 25% of the directors of a corporation must be "Canadian residents" and, for the case where the corporation has less than four directors, at least one director must be a Canadian resident.
The corporation may be under a federal or provincial jurisdiction depending on the type of business it intends to carry out, the territory it intends to serve, or the special requirements of corporate laws at each level of government.
The corporation may be identified either by a designating number or a corporate name which must comply with the applicable regulations and laws and be subject to a prior name search to ensure that it is not already used or it cannot be confused with another existing name or trademark. In both cases, the business corporation may also use an assumed name (alias) to identify itself.
