Modernizing the Registraire des Entreprises

Since February 14, 2011, the Registraire des Entreprises has been governed by the two following statutes:

  • The Act respecting the legal publicity of enterprises, which consolidates the Act respecting the legal publicity of sole proprietorships, partnerships and legal persons and the Act respecting the enterprise registrar;
  • The Business Corporation Act, which is intended to modernize and ease the law applicable to companies governed by Parts I and IA of the Companies Act.
Note
Part III of the Companies Act will remain in force and continue to govern legal persons that have no share capital and that were constituted or continued by letters patent.

These statutes aim to simplify the administrative formalities required of enterprises, through online services accessible at all times.

Enterprises can use the online services available on the website of the Registraire des entreprises to:

  • constitute a business corporation;
  • register;
  • update their information;
  • fulfil their obligations; and
  • make inquiries or transactions when it suits them.
Note

Our online services include validations and technical assistance that help you file your application and, in certain cases, ensure that it is processed immediately.

The use of a clicSÉQUR express access code or a clicSÉQUR – Entreprises user code proves that the person who filed your request is authorized to do so.

Forms are to be used where there is no online service available.

The Registraire des entreprises also makes a tool available to professionals acting as communication intermediaries between the Registraire and enterprises. The tool enables them to manage the files of the enterprises they are in charge of.

To access these services in My Office, a secure space just for you, you must enter your clicSÉQUR express access code and your Québec enterprise number (NEQ), or using your clicSÉQUR – Entreprises user code and password. If you do not know one or more of these codes, call 1 866 423-3243.

Important
The letter containing the clicSÉQUR express access code is mailed to the enterprise's head office and addressed to either the head of the enterprise or the accounting department. The access code is permanent and is automatically sent to all registered enterprises. If you have forgotten or lost the code, call our client services at 1 866 423-3234.
