Registration documents are received by the Corporate Registry and reviewed prior to officially filing the document and issuing any relevant related document, e.g. Certificate of Incorporation. In the normal course, this results in a delay between receipt of the documents and the eventual approval, filing and issuance by Corporate Registry. Upon completion of these procedures, the Registry's database is then updated.
As well, the user should be aware that in the normal course, as permitted by various Acts, the approval/filing/issuance by Corporate Registry, for example, of a Certificate of Incorporation, may be backdated to the date of receipt of the documents.
