Registering as a Professional Corporation In Ontario

The colleges of many regulated professions in Ontario permit their members to incorporate as a Professional Corporation in Ontario. These colleges do not permit a federal corporation, an out-of-province corporation, nor an LLC to receive a Certificate of Authorization. So you need to order an Ontario biased Nuans report for your corporate name and incorporate in Ontario.

Before applying for articles of incorporation, members are advised to review the College’s application package for a Certificate of Authorization, Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) including the Health Professions Procedural Code(sections 85.8-85.14), and College by-laws. Applicants are urged to ensure that they are in compliance with regulations governing the corporation name as this is strictly enforced.
