The Companies Office has closed its doors to the public effective March 19, 2020 and some staff are working from home. We continue to provide service through our website, general phone line, email, mail and fax. Our goal is to continue to provide service throughout these unusual times.
BEFORE submitting your documents, see processing dates page to verify what date we are working on.
Expedited Services are offered for online services only however, turnaround times may vary
The Commissioner for Oaths Office is closed to the public but continuing operation. Please use mail or fax to send in your documents.
We register information about corporations and business names. The public may search the registry to obtain information (for example, who is doing business under the trade name, where the business is located, and to get a list of officers and directors).
When individuals want to incorporate or register their trade name, we review the proposed names to make sure that they aren't confusingly similar to ones already on our record. Then our office will incorporate the company or register the business name.
Finally, we are also responsible for the appointments and renewals of Commissioner for Oaths and Notary Publics. This includes the authentication of a Notary Public's signature on documents.
