Type of Companies

There are 2 different types of businesses that can be registered:

  • Sole Proprietorship: A "sole proprietor" is anyone who is carrying on a business which is not incorporated and who is doing so without any legal partners, that is, carrying on business by oneself. In Nova Scotia, a sole proprietorship is actually registered as a "partnership" but with only one partner listed, in other words, it is a partnership of one.
  • Partnership : There should be more than 1 members to form a partnership.
