Division of Powers — Incorporation

Incorporation In Canada

The Constitution Act, 1867, S. 92 (11) Awards the provinces the power to allow “The Incorporation of Companies with Provincial Objects”.

You will notice the term “Provincial Objects”. This means that the federal government may also allow the formation of corporations with federal or national objects. The territories may also form corporations.

This means that in Canada, 10 provinces, 3 territories, and the federal government have mechanisms to form corporations.
