A corporation is a legal entity that:

  • is created for the purpose of producing goods and services for the market;
  • may be a source of profit or other financial gain to its owner(s); and
  • is collectively owned by shareholders who have the authority to appoint directors responsible for its general management.

Respondents should choose 'no' if the legal entity of their service's owner or management group does not reflect the definition.
