Making Forays into Canada with an Existing Business

If you have a pre-established business and want to expand it into the Canadian market as an immigrant, the process for it is pretty straightforward. You may register in any one of the provinces, choosing one with the easiest registration procedure and lowest fee.

This is what it means to establish what is referred to as extra-provincial incorporation. For example, if you have a business in your home country in Asia, and wish to start a company in Vancouver, you can register your company as an extra-provincial corporation.
