Eric P. Cohen, Barrister & Solicitor offers Federal (Canada) Not-For-Profit Incorporation packages which provide you with a not-for-profit organization incorporated under the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act.
A not-for-profit corporation is similar to a for-profit or business corporation as it is considered to be a legal person with an independent existence separate and distinct from its members. The main difference between a for-profit and not-for-profit corporation is the ability to distribute profits. In a not-for-profit corporation any profit must be retained within the corporation and cannot be distributed to the members.
Federal (Canada) Corporations have the constitutional right to carry on business under their registered corporate names within any Canadian Province or Territory, subject to any provincial or territorial registration requirements. The general advantage to Federal Incorporation is enhanced protection for the corporate name, which is second only to trademark protection.
