If you are a business owner in Ontario, you may have heard of the term “amalgamation” in relation to corporate law.

What is an Amalgamation?

An amalgamation is a process where two or more corporations merge into a single corporation. In an amalgamation, one corporation survives while the other corporation(s) cease to exist. The surviving corporation assumes all of the assets, liabilities, rights, and obligations of the merged corporation(s).
