Canadian Corporate Law In Less Than 100 Words

Canadian corporate law in four sentences: A corporation is a person, just like you and me. Corporate liability stays with the company; investors’ personal risk is limited to the amount they’ve invested in the company. The board — and not necessarily the executives or the owners — must answer for the corporation’s actions. Majority control rules, but minority owners might have statutory protections. Legal strategy: Incorporate; don’t lie; negotiate before you litigate; get everything in writing; keep your papers organized; plan for succession the day you open shop; and never, never tick off the Canada Revenue Agency.
