Description

If you want to form a limited partnership in Ontario, you must file a declaration under the Limited Partnerships Act (LPA). If a limited partnership that was formed outside Ontario wishes to carry on business in Ontario, it must also file a declaration under the LPA.

Limited partnerships are not incorporated and are subject to the LPA and other applicable laws. They typically consist of at least one general partner who has liability for all debts and obligations of the firm, and one or more limited partners who have limited liability up to the amount that they contribute or agree to contribute to the limited partnership.

Changes: If any of the information set out in your declaration changes, you must file a declaration of change within 15 days after the change under the Limited Partnership Act (LPA), free of charge. For example, you must file a declaration of change if the firm name, address of principal place of business, or any other information changes.
