  • Move Your Existing Company to Canada

    Moving or expanding your existing business into Canada can be surprisingly straightforward with the assistance of skilled business immigration lawyers. Each province has various registration procedures and associated fees for extra-provincial incorporation. Sobirovs Law Firm can assist you in registering your existing company in the province you choose. This extra-provincial incorporation will generally require an Agent for Service, who must be an individual over the age of 18 that is a resident of the applicable province, or the Agent for Service must be a corporation having its registered office in that province. If you wish for your existing foreign company to do business in more than one province, you will have to register your business separately with each province. Our team can assist you in complying with each province’s procedures to provide extra-provincial registration for your company.
