Description

  • Upon issuance of its articles of incorporation, a corporation legally exists as a legal person, but it must be subjected to a legal organization as soon as possible following the incorporation to comply with the requirements of the Business Corporations Act.
  • The legal organization of a corporation in particular consists of the adoption of a banking by-law, general and administrative by-laws depending on whether it is a provincial or federal corporation, as well as the passing of resolutions of directors and of shareholders, and other documents referred to in the "Summary" tab above.
  • For additional legal information on corporate services, please contact  .
  • This service offers to the person who would be the sole shareholder of a corporation governed by the Quebec Business Corporations Act the possibility of choosing an organization without a board of directors. If that would be the case, said person will have to sign a declaration of the sole shareholder to withdraw all powers from the board of directors.
  • To comply with the law and avoid any misunderstandings or delay, for example, in obtaining financing, it is important that the corporation's minute book be kept up to date and be a true reflection of the current administrative situation of the corporation and its directors, officers and shareholders.
  • Accordingly, all resolutions of the board of directors and of shareholders must be duly signed by the concerned persons and the minutes, where applicable, must be subject to adoption at the next meeting.
