search for a federal corporation
This database does NOT include corporations created under financial legislation (such as financial institutions, insurance companies or loan and trust companies) or those created under provincial/territorial legislation or corporate legislation from another jurisdiction. You can find corporations created under provincial/territorial legislation by consulting Canada’s Business Registries.
If a corporation has just completed a transaction with Corporations Canada, it may be several hours before the database is updated.
Searches can be performed by Corporate Name, Corporation Number, or Business Number (BN). Search Tips

As of now, we get information from the official registries of Alberta, British Columbia, Corporations Canada, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. This service lets you search across these registries at one time. We are working to update the registry information often and add more registries. You should check the registry source for the most current information. Information on financial institutions, such as banks or insurance companies, is not part of this service.
