créer l’Espace collectif” (I am authorized to create the Collective space), you

required to provide certain information about the enterprise or organization:
name and address;
- a summary of its activities.

organization indicated in the REQ is in a language other than French, you must
indicate the French version of this name that the enterprise or organization
uses and under which it identifies itself in the course of its activities in

noms utilisés au Québec” (Other names used in Québec) section of the
declaration of registration of the enterprise or organization.

under which the enterprise or organization is identified in Québec. These names
are generally used to designate an enterprise or organization other than under
its official name (e.g.: numbered company).

the published mandates and in the Enterprise or Organization File, as soon as a
mandate is published from this Collective space.

a group, an association or a coalition, add all the information that will
clearly identify its members by clicking on " Ajouter

street, you can indicate that the members of the coalition include the

are in the coalition and there is no wording that specifically identifies them,
