Searching the Corporate Database
If you are using the Corporate Database for the first time, we’d like to provide you with basic search criteria information. A quick read through this section will give you an understanding of the system and the types of results you will receive.
There are eight different searches to choose from:
- Entity name
- Individual’s name
- Identification number
- Filing number
- Agent’s name
- Business address
- NAICS code
Search Options (active or inactive)
- Active: The Corporation Information Management System (CIMS) holds all active entity records, names of registered non-resident landlords and other miscellaneous filings. The CIMS also holds the records of entities whose certificates of incorporation/formation/authority have been revoked for less than one year.
- Inactive: The Inactive Database holds all inactive entity records, including cancelled non-resident landlord registrations, and other inactive miscellaneous filings.
