Companies Office

COVID-19 The Companies Office has closed its doors to the public effective March 19, 2020 and some staff are working from home. We continue to provide service through our website, general phone line, email, mail and fax. Our goal is to continue to provide service throughout these unusual times.

The Commissioner for Oaths Office is also closed to the public but continuing operation. Please use mail to send your documents.

We register information about corporations and business names. The public may search the registry to obtain information (for example, who is doing business under the trade name, where the business is located, and to get a list of officers and directors).

When individuals want to incorporate or register their trade name, we review the proposed names to make sure that they aren't confusingly similar to ones already on our record. Then our office will incorporate the company or register the business name.

Finally, we are also responsible for the appointments and renewals of Commissioner for Oaths and Notary Publics. This includes the authentication of a Notary Public's signature on documents.
