Digital-first approach to forms for business and not-for-profit corporations

On January 15, 2020, Corporations Canada will introduce new service fees for federal business and not-for-profit corporations, and cooperatives. Many online services for businesses and not-for-profit corporations will be cheaper or free.

To encourage the use of digital service delivery methods, Corporations Canada will remove a number of PDF forms from its website when the new fees come into effect. On January 15, PDF forms will no longer be available for download for most business and not-for-profit services offered online, including incorporations, amendments and annual returns.

PDF forms no longer available online as of January 15, 2020
