What data is expected?

List of registered (limited liability) companies. The submissions in this data category do not need to include detailed financial data such as balance sheet, etc. Open data from company registers may be used for many ends: e.g. enabling customers and businesses to see with whom they deal, or to see where a company has registered offices. This definition draws on the work of OpenCorporates.

  • Name of company

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Information on Federal Corporation is available through Industry Canada (current organization name: Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada) on Canada's Open Government portal under the Open Government Licence - Canada. Data are freely available online in .XML format and can be downloaded all at once in a single .ZIP file. They contain information such as company name, identification number, and address, and are updated on a weekly basis. However, the dataset does not include information about corporations created under financial legislation (such as financial institutions, insurance companies or loan and trust companies) or those created under provincial, territorial or other corporate legislation. The dataset provider has not responded as to where such information can be found.
