The "Articles of Incorporation" (sometimes also referred to as the Certificate of Incorporation or the Corporate Charter) are the primary rules governing the management of a corporation in the United States and Canada, and are filed with a state or other regulatory agency.

An equivalent term for LLCs in the United States is the Articles of Organization. For terms with similar meaning in other countries, see articles of association.
