Filing Renewals for your Business Name
Renewals must be filed with Corporate Registry every three years after the original registration date. They may be filed up to three months before the expiry date.

What is a renewal?
A renewal maintains your business's registration and verifies that the information in Corporate Registry records is correct. The renewal is generated by the Corporate Registry and sent to the business. It is recommended that you verify the information online.

Forgot to file a Renewal?
If a renewal is not received by the due date, the registration of the business name will expire as of that date and will be shown as ‘expired' on the Register of Corporations. Once expired, your business name becomes available to anyone else requesting a similar name after 90 days.

Filing your renewal:

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

Change your Business Information

You must also notify the Corporate Registry within 15 days of any change to the business address, mailing address or the address of the proprietor or partners.

Filing a Change of Address/Change of Name:

  • Login to the Corporate Registry application.
    • Select ‘file’.
  • Enter your entity number in the ‘update entity’ field.
