Open a Construction Company in Canada

Open a Construction Company in Canada

Foreign enterprisers interested in starting companies in large investment sectors in Canada can try to set up construction businesses. One can set up a construction company in one of the large cities or smaller Canadian towns where various types of services can be offered.

An important thing to notice is that no matter the investor’s citizenship, the same legislation must be respected when it comes to setting up construction companies in Canada. These laws can be explained by our Canadian company formation agents.

Laws applicable in the construction industry in Canada

The following laws must be respected by those who open construction companies in Canada:

  • electrical, technical and safety standards applicable in the construction field;
  •  excavation regulations which apply in conformity with the type of construction to be built;
  •  the building code of the Canadian province where the company will operate;
  •  employment regulations which apply to construction workers in Canada.

It should be noted that each province has its own regulations applicable to construction companies. Our local consultants recommend you register a Canadian construction business in the region it will operate.

Registering the construction company in Canada

The registration steps of a construction company are the same no matter if the business is set up at a federal or territorial level, however, the documentation will vary. Our Canada company formation advisors can help with the registration at both the federal and provincial level.

Special considerations in the Canadian construction sector

When opening a construction company in Canada, each province has its own regulations which is why special attention must be paid to the city where the business will operate. These regulations can imply special qualifications for workers and for the manager of the company, as well as special permits depending on the type of construction work.

Companies in Canada can execute residential or commercial construction works, but also building remodeling work and all the permits issued for these activities are issued by the city hall of the city the work is carried out.
