If you are not a Canadian citizen or an immigrant, you can create a business in Canada, but your options are more limited:

1) Incorporation (Corporation). If the choice fell on a provincial town, for example, Ontario, it is necessary that the Canadian resident is a co-founder of your company.

It is important to note that the founder must have a high percentage of participation, the company must have a legal address and have a director. As an exception, the provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec are worth mentioning.
