Legal - Regulatory - Accounting

Caution, the below information is really dry, though lawyers, accountants, and government regulators may find it fascinating (or not). It could be confusing to many people. Likely is not of any interest to most people. Reading it may cause sleepiness. Do not read while driving. Proceed with extreme caution, and have a pillow on hand!

The Urban Internet Company is a division of WRS Web Solutions Inc. This means that our company's legal name is WRS Web Solutions Inc. We are a Canadian company, incorporated federally on 1 May 2010.

Customer Invoices & Our Address

Customer invoices are sent by email from 'The Urban Internet Company' (this website). The charge on your credit card statement contains the invoice number, and it will mention the location as 'Angus, ON', this is because our 'legal record address' is located in Angus for government reporting purposes, as is our Accounting Dept, but our letter mailing address (except for modems and parcels) is:

WRS Web Solutions Inc. 18 King Street East, Suite 1400 Toronto, ON M5C 1C4

The above address is not a retail location, or a modem pickup or return location.

If you have a question, or concern, please use the contact form, as it will be much quicker than contacting us by Canada Post! If you need to return a modem to us, do not use the above address, instead please refer to the Support page of our site for a Canada Post Return Number which will cover the cost of postage and will allow Canada Post to print the return mailing label (with a different mailing address on it), and they will put the label on the parcel for you.

CRTC

The CRTC requires all internet service providers in Canada to register as an internet service provider under their legal name. We are so registered. If you have questions on this topic, please use the contact form.
