End or Restart a Non-Profit Corporation

Strike off

The Director of Corporations may strike or remove the name of a corporation from the Register if the corporation:
  • Does not file any notice, return or other document that the Act requires to be filed;
  • Does not pay any required fee;
  • Dissolves and amalgamates with another corporation; or
  • Does not follow certain directions that may be given to it by the Director.

The most common reason why a corporation is struck from the register is for not filing its annual return or financial statements. Where annual statements are concerned, a corporation will be struck from the Register If an annual return and financial statements are not received within two months of the due date.

Striking a corporation off the Register is not the same as dissolving the corporation.

Restoring a name to the Register

Before it can be reinstated, a corporation that has been struck off the register must include:
  • Any supporting documents (such as overdue financial statements); and
  • A name search request if the corporation has been struck for more than one year.

  • Login to the Corporate Registry application.
    • Select ‘file'.
  • Enter your Saskatchewan entity number or name in the ‘update entity’ field.
    • Click on your entity name that displays.
    • Select the option ‘application to restore name to the register’.
  • Complete the application and submit.
    • The summary screen within the application will provide an overview of your registration.

Dissolution

A dissolution is a voluntary legal termination of a corporation. A corporation can dissolve one of three ways:
  1. A corporation can apply to dissolve when it has no property and no liabilities, has not issued any membership interests or other securities and is dissolved by resolution of all the directors. 
  2. The corporation has no property and no liabilities and is dissolved by special resolution of the members of each class whether or not they are otherwise entitled to vote.
  3. Or, when the corporation has distributed its property and discharged its liabilities pursuant to special resolution of shareholders of each class whether or not they are otherwise entitled to vote.

Filing your Dissolution:

  • Login to the Corporate Registry application.
    • Select ‘file’.
  • Enter your Saskatchewan entity number or name in the ‘update entity’ field.
    • Click on your entity name that displays.

  • Complete the application and submit.
    • The summary screen within the application will provide an overview of your registration

Revival

A revival allows a corporation that has been dissolved to be restored to its previous legal position in the same manner and to the same extent as if it had not been dissolved. A corporation is revived on the date appearing on the Certificate of Revival.
