Name of creator
In December 1869 the province of Ontario passed into law the Registration of Co-Partnerships Act. It became necessary thereafter to register partnerships of two or more persons in business. Registration was to include the full names of the partners, the name and nature of the business, and the date which the partnership was originally established.
Scope and content
Practically all of the partnership certificates in this collection pertain to publishing, printing, book selling, and allied trades. The certificates were all registered at the Registry Office in Toronto.
Immediate source of acquisition
The collection (18-2004) was acquired from The Alexander Gallery in August 2004.
