Registering in Harmony: The Case for Pan-Canadian Corporate Registration

February 25, 2014 — Daniel Schwanen and Omar Chatur

Canadian businesses face costly red tape when they want to do business across provincial borders; a problem that is hindering business expansion and economic growth, according to a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Registering in Harmony: The Case for Pan-Canadian Corporate Registration,” authors Daniel Schwanen and Omar Chatur note that while  harmonization of corporate registries is proceeding apace around the world, in Canada, incorporated companies are required in most cases to register separately in every province where they want to conduct business.
