Canada business law questions? Ask an attorney without an appointment


In Canada, companies can be incorporated under either federal or provincial regulations. Federal regulations are defined under the Canada Business Corporations Act, and the rules can vary from those defined at the provincial level. Through the CBCA, Canada provides the framework for corporate governance to over 200,000 corporations. Depending upon the specific needs of your business, the decision over where to incorporate will have a large impact on the Canada business laws you must follow.


If you need help making sense of Canada business law, the Experts on JustAnswer can provide the assistance you're looking for. With their advice, you'll be able to sort out your confusion, and make the best decisions based on the needs of your business. Best of all, you approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

How to get your business law questions answered efficiently


The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to questions like:


  • I have a debt collection agency after me for a Shaw cable bill owing on an account opened as a minor. Would my being a minor affect the debt?
  • On our website, I post photos and videos of crowds of people. Do I have the right to show these photos on our website?
  • If I incorporate a company with four partners, am I more  protected than if I register it?
  • If somebody sues me, can they still sue me personally if I am incorporated?
  • Can the sole director of an incorporated company be truly free from any financial ties linked to that corporation as long as she is not withdrawing any salary from it?

To give you the best advice possible, the Expert will need some information. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • What state or province are you in?
  • Has anything been filed or reported?
  • What were the key events and their timeline?
  • What is the current status of your dispute?

With this information, you'll be ready to have a constructive session with the Expert.
