During its existence, a corporation may agree with one of its shareholders to buy back shares that the latter holds in its own capital. The issuing corporation must then pass a resolution to purchase the shares by private agreement and the same applies to the shareholder who is a corporation.
The available resolution is suitable for the purchase of one class of shares and the shares must have been fully paid by the shareholder.
This resolution meets the needs of the majority of corporations for relatively simple situations and includes the documentation stated in the "Summary" tab.
For a more complex situation, please contact .
In general, any decision concerning a corporation must be subject to a resolution passed by its Board of Directors.
Any resolution of the corporation must be kept in its minute book.

If the issuing corporation is governed by the Quebec Business Corporations Act, the notice to be given to the shareholders or the resolution to be signed by all the shareholders in accordance with the requirements of section 89 of said Act;
Registers of shares and transfers for information only.
And, where applicable:
Demand note where the shares purchase price is not paid in money;
Share certificate for any shareholder to whom will remain a balance of shares in the subject class following the purchase by private agreement.
