Form 3, Change of Registered Office Address, is a formal document used by Canadian corporations to inform the authorities about the change in their registered address. Whether the company relocated or simply decided to put its headquarters in a different place, it was required by the Canada Business Corporations Act (CBCA to notify the Canada Department of Industry about the address change within fifteen days. The new address is then considered corporate information to be published online, and all correspondence would be sent to that address. Additionally, the business must keep its corporate records at this location.
Form 3 is issued by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada with the latest version of the document released on November 1, 2016. The document is no longer in use. A fillable Form 3 PDF can be downloaded for reference through the link below. If your corporation is governed by the CBCA, you can change your information either online or by phone, mail, or fax.
To request the change of the company address, the businesses previously needed to indicate the full name of the corporation, its number (found in the articles), the new address, and the additional address (this mailing address was added if the corporation wanted someone else to get their documentation - for instance, a law firm). The form was considered complete when the individual authorized by the corporation to act on its behalf (director or agent) acknowledged they had relevant knowledge about the corporation, confirmed the authorization to file this request, signed the document, printed their full name, and recorded their telephone number.
