Incorporation is the process of creating a Corporation that is validly registered in Alberta. Many small business owners look to incorporation for tax planning advantages, or to protect their personal assets from liability related to the business.
Incorporation is one of several "business vehicles" (Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships, etc.) available to you. Deciding on the most appropriate business vehicle is a complex and nuanced issue, and we recommend speaking to a lawyer to choose the right one for you. That being said, Incorporation is the most commonly recommended business vehicle in Alberta.
