Just be sure that Revenue Canada agrees they are contractors. There are
various criteria they use to determine if they are real contractors and
not simply employees (in revenue canada's opinion) for whom you are
avoiding paying benefits etc.
Large companies typically require that contractors are themselves
incorporated as they feel this provides the necessary arms length
That last paragraph is certainly not a legal requirement - in theory.
Anyway, while speaking to accountants make sure you get the low down on
the above issue.
