Preparing BC Registries and Online Services Documents for Authentication

These include documents issued by BC Registries and Online Services (formerly BC Corporate Registry):

  • Certificates of Incorporation, Good Standing, Change of Name, Partnership, Sole Proprietorship, Status, Notice of Articles, and others

Submission instructions:

  • Submit BC Registries and Online Services Documents directly to the OIC Administration Office for authentication if they have a signature and seal imprint from the Registrar of Companies
  • Documentation obtained online that does not bear the Registrar’s seal imprint must be accompanied by the online receipt or be notarized. Contact us for detailed instructions
  • Documents without a signature must be notarized (see Notarized documents)
