Can you convert a sole proprietorship in Ontario to a corporation without additional Directors?


I believe usually 3 directors are required. Is there a way around this?

  • I'm from the states so don't have an answer for you but incorporation and sole proprietership are two different legal orginization mechenisms. If your talking about a corporation with only one owner then that is different then a sole proprietarship. – John Bogrand 8 years ago
  • Well.. I mean change a sole proprietorship into a corporation, or start a corporation from scratch if this is easier. Yes, I am aware of the difference of a sole proprietorship and a corporation. – Txwikinger 8 years ago

Interesting. I have a corporation here in Ontario, and there is one director - myself. I believe that you require a president and secretary, but the same person can serve as both.
