eCore Forms Library
Through our Partner Portal, Dye & Durham can now electronically process all your filing requests that were traditionally processed at the service counters. The new Ministry Filing forms that comply with the new Ontario Business Registry (OBR) regulatory framework are available for download on this page.
The new PDF forms must be used as of October 19th, 2021. Please read the additional information presented at the bottom of this page for helpful filing tips and turnaround times.
To submit for processing: Email the completed forms using the PDF’s form fill functionality and send them to [email protected] as attachments. In your email, you may specify the requested filing date.
Disclaimer: The Ministry may update these forms from time to time. Please ensure you are using the latest version of the forms, as the Ministry may not accept outdated forms.
Form Download Instructions
Download the forms and complete them with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader version 8 and later, otherwise, you will receive an error message. If you are having issues opening the forms, first open Adobe and then open the downloaded document from Adobe directly (File -> Open). To learn more, visit: https://helpx.adobe.com/livecycle/kb/xfa-pdf-forms-policy-protected-documents-not-displayed.html
Company Key: A 9-digit number your client can provide to you by signing up on the Ontario Business Registry website.
In many scenarios, you can leave the company key requirement blank, as Dye & Durham has blanket or delegated authority to complete these transactions without it. Learn more at our FAQS.
Please note that forms cannot be printed where a company key has not been entered. To print your forms, you can simply enter 9 zeros in the field. By including a placeholder company key in your forms there will be no implications for your filing.
Official Email Address: All official correspondence for the company from the Province of Ontario will be sent to the Official Email Address. The address should be an individual with the legal duty to manage the business. The official e-mail address will not appear on the public record.
NAICS code: A NAICS code is a classification within the North American Industry Classification System. NAICS has been designed for statistical purposes. See the directory to select the most applicable NAICS code for the filing.
Submit Forms for Filing Instructions:
Please submit the completed forms using the form fill functionality and send them to [email protected] as attachments, along with any schedules and agreements. In your email, you may specify the filing date.
Several fields within the forms provided have character limits which can prevent you from entering the full text required. If you are unable to fit your entire block of text into a field within the required form the text can be provided in a separate attached document. If providing text within a separate document, please indicate the following within the text field within the form: “[SEE ATTACHED]” and provide complete text in a separate document.
We ask that you do not email any scanned versions of the PDF forms as they are not supported at this time. Schedules and agreements may be uploaded and submitted in any format.
