A registered agent, such as CorporationCentre.ca,
acts as a registered address of the corporation in the province or other jurisdiction of
incorporation. The registered agent provides a registered address for the receipt of service
of government filings (and in certain cases legal papers) and acts as a local contact for
government agencies. The registered agent forwards any such documents and correspondence
to the corporation.
Certain provinces require that a corporation
incorporated in their territory have a registered agent. Corporations often use a professional
registered agent to maintain crucial documents sent from government departments or other
agencies separate from other corporate correspondence. CorporationCentre.ca can provide
registered agent services in all Canadian provinces.
