What is an Alberta Corporate Registry Search?

Corporate Seal

A corporate search is a process of obtaining information about a company or corporation from public records. The purpose of a corporate search can vary depending on the requester's needs, but some common reasons include due diligence for potential investments or partnerships, or verifying legal ownership and status.

During a corporate search, various documents and records may be reviewed, such as the company's articles of incorporation, annual returns, and other filings. These documents can provide valuable insights into the company's structure, history, and legal standing.

Corporate searches can be conducted by individuals, businesses, or government agencies, and the process can be performed online or in-person. It is important to note that the exact information available in a corporate search can vary depending on the type of company being searched.

A certified corporate search is the official record for these entities and will provide the current information found on their record.

Proceed to Search

How do I conduct an Alberta Corporate Registry Search?

Generally searches are performed by the name of the business or non-profit though you also have the option to search by the entity number (corporate access/registration number) if you have it available.

Prior to submitting your search you will be provided with a preliminary list of possible matches that you can choose from. If the preliminary search does not return the entity that you are looking for, please contact our office to conduct a manual search. In the event that there are multiple entities returned for the name you searched, you can place separate orders for each company you would like details on.
