The easiest way to register a business as a corporation or sole proprietorship in Canada is by using Ownr, an RBC Ventures company. Usually the process takes weeks to complete, but with the platform, it only takes a few minutes.
If your company is already incorporated you can use Ownr to grow your business, as well as manage your government filings, business and employee agreements, and much more.

RBC business bank accounts start at $5 per month for the Digital Account Package.
To qualify, you must open an RBC business bank account within 60 days of registering with Ownr, and your bank account must remain open for at least a year or you are required to pay back the refund.
