Keep your corporations active and in good standing with company registry by filing your annual return. It is the responsibility for each corporation to notify company registry that your company is still operating and the registered information (directors/shareholders/attorney/address) is up to date.
Important: Please note this is not the same as your tax return which is filed through Revenue Canada.

Good Standing Certificate

If you need a certificate of good standing (also called certificate of status, certificate or subsistence, or certificate of existence) to verify a company’s current status, we can help.
These certificates are often needed for a business transaction to support a loan request or to provide assurance to a potential supplier or buyer you are looking to enter into a contract with that your corporation exists and has not been dissolved.
The certificate can be obtained for any registered company in Canada.

What is a Certificate of Good Standing?
A Certificate of Good Standing is a document issued by the provincial authorities that proves that your entity exists
and is in compliance with all provincial requirements, such as filing annual reports.
When do you need a Certificate of Good Standing?
You’ll need a Certificate of Good Standing when your business expands to another jurisdiction, enters into a deal or
when you wish to obtain or renew certain types of financing, loans, or licenses, as in the case of a merger &
What is the purpose of annual reports?
Not all states have annual reports. Some have biennial reports (due every other year) instead. Whether annual or
biennial, the primary purpose of a company’s annual report remains the same. An Annual Report provides updated
information on the business. Many details for a business can change in the course of a year. The business may have moved
locations. Management of the business might have changed. The annual report provides states with a means for keeping
updated information on businesses.
Does my business really need to file an annual report?
Chances are, yes. Nearly every state requires an annual information report from every corporation and LLC that operates
under its jurisdiction. Your company is required to file in the state where you first formed as well as in every other
state where you’re registered to do business.
What happens if I don’t file a required report?
If you file late or fail to file altogether, you’ll probably incur a few serious fines and penalties. Your business may
lose its good standing in that state. Worse, you could face administrative dissolution or a revocation of authority to
do business in the state—jeopardizing your protection from business debts.
