Notice - Changes to Corporations Canada forms

Corporations Canada has implemented changes to a number of its forms related to the Canada Business Corporations Act, the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and the Special Act of Parliament.

  • PDF forms now reflect the new name of the Department ̶ Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. In early 2017, all forms available online will be modified to reflect the new name.
  • PDF forms now allow, under the Corporation Number heading, for an additional digit. It is expected that in late Fall 2016, Corporations Canada will start issuing 8-digit corporation numbers. This will not in any way alter the legitimacy of any previously issued corporation numbers with less than 8 digits.
  • Administrative changes are also being made to PDF forms.

For a complete list of changes made to PDF forms, see Changes to Corporations Canada documents released in the last 12 months.
