Inter-corporate ownership, first quarter 2019

Released: 2019-04-11

The first quarter issue of Inter-corporate Ownership is now available.

This product is a directory of corporate ownership in Canada. It provides information on each individual corporation that is part of a group of commonly controlled corporations with combined assets exceeding $600 million, or with combined revenue exceeding $200 million. Individual corporations with debt obligations or equity owing to non-residents exceeding a net book value of $1 million are covered as well.

Ultimate corporate control is determined through a careful study of holdings by corporations, the effects of options, insider holdings, convertible shares and interlocking directorships.

The Corporations Returns Act was adopted by Parliament in April 1962 with the purpose of collecting information necessary to determine the extent and effect of non-resident ownership and control of corporations in Canada.

The data disseminated in the Inter-Corporate Ownership product is not confidential, as it is collected in Schedule I – Ownership under the authority of the Corporations Returns Act, C-43.


The first quarter issue of Inter-corporate Ownership (Catalogue number61-517-X) is now available online in a new web-based format.
