Name a Corporation
Corporations Canada verifies that the corporate name you want to use for your company meets certain criteria and that it does not conflict with the name of an existing business.
Corporations Canada requires a "Canada-biased NUANS Name Search Report" to consider the corporate name you are proposing. These reports can be obtained either with NUANS Real-Time System (RTS) or NUANS Registered Members. Please note that the Province of Quebec does not currently provide data to NUANS. For your own protection if you are doing, or intend to do business in the Province of Quebec, you should search the Quebec corporations database at Registraire des entreprises du Quebec.
A NUANS Name Search Report is not required if you want Corporations Canada to assign a numbered name.
