A general partnership merely requires that there be a "relationship that subsists between persons carrying on a business in common with a view to profit." [definitions, Partnership Act (Alberta) R.S.A. 2000, c. P-3, comparable to definition in the Partnership Act (Ontario) R.S.O. 1990, c. P.5] As such, for all intensive purposes, partnerships can arise quite easily, and the law will recognize them as such, unless the participants specifically choose to formalize an alternate legal construct through which they will carry forth their business pursuits. Without structure, the default structure is that of a partnership, which invariably benefits from the formalization of the partnership structure with a well-devised legal agreement.

Nevertheless, establishing structure is important to every business enterprise, whether it is a partnership or otherwise. As such, it makes a lot of sense to establish a clear structure for your business partnership and set it forth in a written partnership agreement. By negotiating and drafting a contract that deals with everything from partner contributions to operations and obligations to exit strategies, the partners will be capable of pursuing the business in a far more meaningful and confident manner. For with a well-devised framework, there is a clear plan of action and a means through which problems and disputes can be resolved. The value of a partnership agreement cannot be understated, given its ever greater importance in the years to come, as things change and develop..
