Ministry Filing Services – Urgent Updates

Important Updates

*NEW – Starting Tuesday February 16th, 2021 The Ministry will resume regular operating hours and will be closing at 5 pm daily once again.  Our daily cut-off time for same day processing will be moved to 4 pm at that time.  We cannot guarantee same day processing for filings & registrations sent after 4 pm as Ministry volumes remain high and delays are expected for a several weeks due to limited staff and the closure of Registry Offices throughout Ontario that offered search and registration services Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

We will continue to post live service updates on our Twitter feed. Please follow at:

Form 2 Initial Notices – The Ministry is now taking up to 4 weeks for Initial Notices.  The 48 expedited service is not available at this time.

Effective Monday November 23, 2020 – In accordance with the Provincial lock down restrictions in Toronto, all completed corporate filings and registrations will have to be returned by courier.

We will do everything in our power to have documents processed same day, but the health and safety of everyone involved is our primary concern and we can only do so if we have access to the Ministry.  As the closing hour of the Ministry approaches (4 pm) they frequently reach or exceed capacity making it difficult to properly social distance causing serious safety concerns, which results in the doors being closed well before 4 pm.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions or concerns.

Be well and stay safe!
