Take this step to file faster and easier

Did you know? With your corporation key, you can now link your corporation to your My ISED Account while filing a transaction on the Online Filing Centre. Once this action is taken, the corporation will be associated to your account and you will no longer need the corporation key to file.

This new feature simultaneously addresses the hassle around sharing a corporation key with members of a corporation, reduces the risk of misplaced keys and prevents the key from falling into the wrong hands.
