03. Facilities

3.1 List all facilities, locations, and operations.
3.2 What is the status of each company property? Are they owned or leased?
3.3 List any industrial development funds or other public monies used in construction, renovation, or purchase.

Information on facilities may be found at Canada’s Business Registries. You can  also search for a federally registered corporation at Corporations Canada on the Industry Canada website.

The Canadas Business Registries is a joint venture of all the provincial-territorial-federal governments, and nicely centralizes the basic information on companies.

The Canadian section of Search Systems links to corporate registration information at the provincial level in the “corporations and business” tab.  The level of information available and whether there is a fee involved varies by Province. You may also want to explore other types of public information that is available.

Open Corporates also provides access to public records on privately held firms worldwide.

You should also consult the company web site and  Hoover’s where you can buy more detailed information. The Dunn and Bradstreet Report on your firm may contain additional information. You will need to purchase it from D&B.

The AFL-CIO maintains the UNICORE database that includes information on corporate facilities in the U.S. and Canada, their location and (if they are unionized) information on the union. This database is only available to AFL-CIO affiliates.

You can find information on industrial development funds or other public monies in the sources above, or by using a Canadian News Search.
