Extra-provincial partnerships arise when a partnership formed in its home jurisdiction seeks to undertake business in a province other than its home jurisdiction. Based on legal criteria and specific indices, such 'foreign' partnerships are required to be extra-provincially registered with those additional provinces for purposes of conducting business within those provinces.

When seeking to determine if your partnership needs to be extra-provincially registered, certain primary considerations include:

- the partnership's name, or any name under which it carries on business, is listed in a telephone directory anywhere in non-home province

- the partnership's name, or any name under which it carries on business, appears or is announced in any advertisement in which an address in the non-home province is given for the extra-provincial partnership

- the partnership has a resident agent, representative, warehouse, office, or place of business in the non-home province

- the partnership solicits business in the non-home province

- the partnership is the owner of an estate or has interest in land in the non-home province

- the partnership is licensed or registered, or required to be licensed or registered, under any statute of the non-home province allowing it to carry on business

- the partnership otherwise carries on business in the non-home province

Although this is an additional layer of government bureaucracy that is being imposed upon business operations that seek to expand commerce outside of a single province and compete in additional markets across Canada, it is fortunately not an onerous process as it pertains to the extra-provincial registration. Nevertheless, it is in your best interest to complete such extra-provincial registration, as it is the law.
