This applies to categories 11, 12, 58, 59, 60 and 61.
Since April 25, 1998, amendments to the charter of a company or corporation have been recorded on the Corporate Registry database. For categories 11 and 12, it will set out any supplementary letters patent. For categories 58, 59, 60 and 61, it will set out any articles of amendment.

Where the amendment includes a name change, it is set out under "Name Change History". Where the amendment does not include a name change - e.g. only a change in the share structure of a corporation - such amendment will only be recorded under "Amendments Other Than a Name Change".

  • To verify if any amendments other than a name change took place for a company or corporation prior to April 25, 1998, you will need to verify this with the Corporate Registry.
  • For categories 58, 59, 60 and 61, if restated articles of incorporation have been filed, this information is also set out in this section if the restated articles were filed since April 25 1998.
  • To verify any restated articles prior to April 25, 1998, you will need to verify this with the Corporate Registry.

Note:

For companies or corporations incorporated by special Act of the Legislature, the Corporate Registry database does not necessarily track amending Acts that have been enacted or proclaimed. Tracking of these amendments which could amend the name of the company or corporation or other provisions of the special Act have been done on a limited "best" efforts basis.

If amending Acts are of importance to you, you may wish to review the relevant yearly Statutes of the Province of New Brunswick to ensure whether any amending Acts were enacted or proclaimed.

Alternatively, you may request a Certificate of Status on the corporation from the Corporate Registry. The Certificate of Status will indicate whether any amending Acts have been enacted or proclaimed for any relevant special Act company or corporation that is subject to either the Business Corporations Act or the Companies Act. The fee for a Certificate of Status is $20.00


Companies, corporations and extra-provincial corporations have annual return obligations (see annual return obligations). This section sets out any outstanding annual return obligations that a company, corporation or extra-provincial corporation has since 1989 which have not yet been rectified.

Note - Where a company, corporation or extra-provincial corporation has a "B" status and its last status change date is before January 1, 1989, then in all likelihood, it has pre-1989 annual return obligations which are still outstanding as well as any deficiencies set out post 1989.

When reviewing any information on annual return deficiencies of a company, corporation or extra-provincial corporation, one should review and understand the corporation's "status". See "Status".

For example, for a corporation which has been dissolved for failure to file annual returns, this section will show any annual return deficiencies of the corporation up to its date of dissolution, i.e. last status change date. Nevertheless, if steps are to be taken to revive the corporation, the annual return obligations between the date of dissolution and date of revival will need to be addressed. See information kit on revivals.

For J, K or L status, the corporation has either been amalgamated, continued out of the Province or has been exempted from continued registration. This section will show any annual return deficiencies of the corporation to its date of amalgamation, continuance or exemption.


For companies, corporations and extra-provincial corporations, they are required to file the relevant annual return under the Act and to pay, where required, filing fees related to the annual return.

For categories 11 and 12 
Companies under or subject to the Companies Act are required to file an annual return. Most companies are not required to pay annual return fees. The annual return (and any fees) are due within one month of its anniversary month. The anniversary month will normally be its month of incorporation.

For categories 58, 59, 60 and 61 
Corporations under or subject to the Business Corporations Act are required to file annual returns and pay annual return fees. The annual return and annual return fee is due within one month of its anniversary month. The anniversary month will normally be its month of incorporation.

For categories 62 and 64 
An extra-provincial corporation is required to file its annual return and pay any relevant annual return fee within one month of its initial month of registration (or exemption) as an extra-provincial corporation.

It should be noted that extra-provincial corporations can file an election of anniversary month. This would allow the corporation to file the annual return and pay any relevant annual return fee based on the month of incorporation in its home jurisdiction instead of the month of initial registration (or exemption) in New Brunswick.


This is used to refer to companies, corporations, extra-provincial corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, extra-provincial limited partnerships and business names which are recorded on the Corporate Registry.

For categories 50, 51, 53 and 54, this is the most recent adress set out on relevant registration documents for the business.

Where one reviews information on any particular company or corporation, a section will appear under the heading "Business Names" to indicate any past or present business name registrations of the company or corporation.

The database of Corporate Registry has only been able to perform this linkage since January 1987. As such, business names registered initially prior to January 1987 may not link to the corporation/company record under this section heading.

If you require further information on this, contact the Branch.

This identifies the business in accordance with the Acts and classification system used by the Corporate Registry. A two-digit code is used to facilitate the classification.

10 - company - Companies Act

This represents companies that were subject to the Companies Act prior to January 1, 1987 that were not deemed continued under the Business Corporations Act. Aside from companies incorporated under the Companies Act, a number of companies incorporated by special Act of the Legislature and that were subject to Companies Act may be set out in this category.

This category is composed of tombstone registrations, i.e., all companies have been dissolved, have had their charter surrendered or forfeited, been amalgamated or discontinued. Check the status on each to determine this. Companies in this category were normally considered to be profit oriented in nature. A few exceptions may exist. Reference to the letters patent of the company may be helpful in this instance.

11 - company - Companies Act

This represents companies that are presently subject to the Companies Act.

Companies in this category will normally be considered to be non-profit or not-for-profit in nature. A few exceptions may exist.

59 - corporation - Business Corporations Act
This represents corporations which were deemed continued on January 1, 1987 from the Companies Act to the Business Corporations Act pursuant to section 2(1)(c) of the Business Corporations Act. For the most part, these companies were initially incorporated under the provisions of the Companies Act and deemed continued on January 1, 1987. These may include a number of special Act companies that are subject to the Companies Act but which were deemed continued under the Business Corporations Act. Since at least September 1992, deemed continued corporations that filed articles of continuance have had their category adjusted from category 59 to category 61. Since 1998, where a deemed continued corporation that was dissolved became revived, its category classification remained the same. If the revival took place prior to 1998, its category may be either 59 or 61.

This represents a free text field whereby certain comments are added to facilitate information disclosure. This will, in the normal course, be limited to the following comments:

Dispute - director

This identifies that an individual disputes either being a director or not being a director of a particular company/corporation. Further information can be obtained by contacting Corporate Registry.

This applies to categories 10, 11, 12, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62 and 64.

Proposed Continuance
This identifies that the company or corporation has filed the relevant documentation in order to apply to another jurisdiction to be continued under the laws of that other jurisdiction.

This applies to categories 11, 12, 58, 59, 60 and 61.

Verify Status

This relates to a number of companies in categories 10 and 11 that are assigned reference numbers from 90,000 to 97,726. These numbers were assigned in 1981-82 to a group of companies that were considered at the time to be inactive and for the most part dissolved.

The status of these companies should be verified with the Corporate Registry. In most cases, the Branch will provide details on the dissolution date of the company. Nevertheless - due to past record keeping and the fact a company has a perpetual existence unless formally dissolved, certain of these companies may still be in formal legal existence. If one is relying on the status and status code for these companies, please first contact the Corporate Registry.

 

Based on the terminology used in these Acts, corporations are incorporated under the Business Corporations Act and companies are incorporated under the Companies Act. Most New Brunswick incorporated entities are either incorporated under or subject to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act or the Companies Act.

Exceptions to the above exist. For example, credit unions, co-operatives and condominium corporations are incorporated under specific legislation governing those legal entities. Credit Unions co-operatives and condominium corporations are not therefore set out on the Registry. 

All dates are set out in the "year-month-day" format.

This sets out the current directors for companies and corporations based on the records of the Registry. The field has been in operation since 1990. The database sets out the current directors of the company/corporation in accordance with the latest Form on file that indicates who are the most current directors of the company/corporation. Directors are recorded as follows:

For categories 11, 12, 58, 59, 60 and 61

  • For any new incorporations since 1990 (also some pre-1990 incorporations).
  • For any Notice of Change of Directors that has been filed since 1990.
  • In cases where a company/corporation was incorporated prior to January 1, 1990 and no Notice of Change of Directors has been received since January 1, 1990, the directors' field will appear, but there is no information set out in the operational database of Corporate Registry. In this case, contact Corporate Registry for information on who the directors are.

For categories 62 and 64

  • For any new registrations since April 5, 2005.
  • For any annual returns or change of directors filed online since April 5, 2005.
  • Where a change of directors' notice has been filed since April 5, 2005 and the database already displays names of directors.
  • Based on this, there will be limited cases where there is no director information set out in the operational database of Corporate Registry. In those cases, contact Corporate Registry for information on who the directors are.

Latest form on file means the following

Categories 10, 11, and 12

  • the incorporating documents or the most recent Notice of Change of Directors

    Category 58

  • the special act or the most recent Notice of Change of Directors

    Categories 59, 60 et 61

  • the most recent Notice of Directors or Notice of Change of Directors

    Categories 62 et 64

  • The registration documents or the most recent Notice of Change of Directors.

For categories 53 and 54, this sets out the current general partners for the partnership in accordance with the most recent Form on file: Declaration of Limited Partnership, Declaration of Extra-Provincial Limited Partnership or Declaration of Change of Limited Partnership or Extra-Provincial Limited Partnership.

This identifies the "home" jurisdiction the business originates from. This is applicable only for categories 54, 62 and 64. If blank, contact Corporate Registry for this information

For categories 10, 11, 12, 59, 60, 61, 62 and 64 companies, corporations and extra-provincial corporations file on a yearly basis an annual return under the respective Act. This field sets out the most recent year the respective annual return was filed. For example, if 2000 is set out, the 2000 annual return is the latest annual return filed.

This field has been operational since 1989. Corporations are required under the respective Act(s) to file an annual return on a yearly basis. No requirement exists to file an annual return in relation to the year of incorporation for a company/corporation and the year of registration for an extra-provincial corporation.

Where an annual return is paper filed, the database records will indicate the filing date as the date the annual return is updated to the database as opposed to the date of receipt by the Corporate Registry Branch.

Annual returns that are e-filed will indicate the filing date as the date it was e-filed.

For categories 50, 51, 53 and 54, a requirement exists on partnerships, business names, limited partnerships or extra-provincial limited partnerships to file a renewal document under the Act every five years. This field sets out the filing date of the latest renewal document. For a partnership or business name, a certificate of renewal is required to be registered every 5 years from the date of initial registration (or previous renewal). For a limited partnership or extra-provincial limited partnership, a new declaration is required to be filed to replace the initial (or previous) declaration prior to the expiry date of the initial (or previous) declaration. A declaration expires five years after its date of filing. Where a partnership, business name, limited partnership or extra-provincial limited partnership is not in compliance with its renewal obligations, the registration is still in effect under the respective Act, but the business has not complied with its renewal/new declaration obligations.

This reflects the date the status was last changed for a given business. The date will reflect the filing date of the document that triggers the status change. E.g. Certificate of Dissolution. It should be noted an exception exists in the case where the status is changed as a result of a Certificate of Discontinuance under the Business Corporations Act or a Notice of Discontinuance being issued under the Companies Act. The status change date will reflect the date of continuance of the company/corporation to its new jurisdiction.

As well, for existing companies, corporations and extra-provincial corporations that have an A status, their status will automatically change to a B status where the company/corporation is delinquent in meeting its current annual return filing obligations. That is, if the current year obligation is not met within one months of its anniversary month, then the status will be changed from "A" to "B" and the status change date will reflect this change having occurred.

Since January 30, 2003, existing business names, partnerships, limited partnerships and extra-provincial partnerships will have their status automatically changed to a "B" status to reflect non-compliance with its obligations to file respectively its certificate of renewal or renewal declaration. As well, registrations not in compliance as of January 30, 2003 were given a status change date of January 30, 2003.

On January 1, 2004, amendments to the Partnerships and Business Names Registration Act and the Partnership Act were proclaimed to permit the designation of a partnership registered under the Partnerships and Business Names Registration Act as a limited liability partnership.

For category 50 - Partnership, the Limited Liability Parthershi field will be displayed when a Certificate of Designation has been filed and is in effect (ie. The designation has not been cancelled in accordance with the Act).

If relevant, you will need to contact the Corporate Registry for information on whether the LLP is a New Brunswick LLP or an extra-provincial LLP.

For categories 62 and 64, a "Yes" in this field indicates that a notice of the liquidation of the corporation has been filed and that no return relating to the completion of the liquidation proceedings has been filed.

For categories 62 and 64, this is the date the notice of the liquidation of the corporation has been filed under the relevant Act.

For all categories, this represents the most current mailing address the Corporate Registry has on the business, based on either extracting the information from documents on file with the Branch or communicated to the Branch by the business.

This reflects the name of the business. A name of a business may be set out in English, in French or a combined language version. The Registry reflects the name of the business that is set out on the registration documentation subject to the following comments.

Since April 25, 1998, the Corporate Registry database has been able to recognize both upper and lower case letters and French character set for new registrations and changes to the name of an existing business. The name is entered into the Registry as it appears on the relevant registration document under the Act(s).

The Corporate Registry does not determine whether particular letters or words in the name of the business should be in upper or lower case or have French character set. It is the business which determines how it wishes its name to be set out in its registration documents.

Differences may well exist in the appearance of the name as to whether it is on one or two or more lines as compared with the actual registration documents. This is the result of either the database field size for names or the user's computer screen resolution. If this characteristic of the name is important, reference to the actual registration documents should be made. Prior to April 25, 1998, the database was strictly upper case with no ability to recognize French character set. The name that is set out on the actual document dealing with the registration is the official record of the name. If the actual setting out of the name - i.e. whether it is in upper or lower case and whether French character set is set out or not is important to you - reference to the actual registration document should be made. This can be done by contacting the Branch or requesting a copy of the relevant document from the Branch.

As well, it should be noted that certain names have exceeded the actual character length of the name field. Since April 25, 1998, the character length field is 120 characters. Prior to that, it was 75 characters in length.

When a name is longer than the field length, the name has been entered up to its cut off point, or cut short to the last full word in the name. The indicator * has been entered at the end of the name field when the Branch is aware the name exceeds the field length. In these cases, please contact the Branch in order to get the full name of the business or request a copy of the relevant registration document from the Branch.


For categories 10, 11, 12, 58, 59, 60 and 61 This sets out changes to the legal name of the company or corporation according to the historical records of the Corporate Registry. Please note where a name change has taken place, the amendment effecting the name change may or may not have amended other aspects of the charter of the company/corporation. (E.g. amendment of the share conditions of a corporation). Where such information is important, you may wish to request a copy or certified copy of the amendment document which effected the name change. Copies and certified copies are available from the Branch at a cost of $10 and $20 respectively. For category 50 This sets out any change in the name of a partnership under the Act that has been filed with the Corporate Registry according to its historical records For category 53 This sets out any change in the name of a limited partnership. For category 54 This sets out any change in the name of an extra-provincial limited partnership that has been filed with Corporate Registry since the initial registration of the extra-provincial limited partnership in New Brunswick. It is always prudent to check with the "home" jurisdiction of the extra-provincial limited partnership to verify its records. For categories 62 and 64 This sets out changes to the name of an extra-provincial corporation that have been filed with Corporate Registry since the initial registration or exemption of the extra-provincial corporation in New Brunswick. It is always prudent to check with the "home" jurisdiction of the corporation to verify its records.

For category 50, this lists the current partners of the partnership in accordance with the most recent Form on file, i.e., the Certificate of Partnership or Certificate of Renewal of Partnership or the Certifiate of Change of Membership of Partnership.

Where a corporation/company is the result of an amalgamation, a listing of the amalgamating corporations/companies is set out under the field "Predecessor Corporations". This field will only record those amalgamations that have been filed after March 18, 2002. For information on whether a corporation/company is the result of an amalgamation prior to March 18, 2002, you must contact the Corporate Registry. In some limited cases, pre-March 18, 2002 amalgamations will be set out under the "Predecessor Corporations" field.

In relation to the above, for category 62, if one or more of the amalgamating corporations are not registered in New Brunswick, the corporation is indicated as "n/a - Records indicates additional corporations". For information of these corporations you will need to contact the Corporate Registry or request a copy of the filed form.

For categories 10, 11, 12, 58, 59, 60 and 61, this field will indicate that a notice of the appointment of a receiver or receiver-manager for the company/corporation has been filed and that no notice of discharge of receiver/receiver-manager has been filed to date.
