Corporate name search
Before approving a new corporate name, most provincial and territorial governments require a Nuans report. Proposed names must always meet the requirements applicable to the jurisdiction in which a business is incorporating. Verify with the authority where you are applying to understand their naming requirements before ordering your report.
For all provinces and territories, contact the relevant authority. Their contact information can be found through innovation.canada.ca.
Nuans is an automated search tool that finds existing corporate and business names, as well as trademarks, that are either identical or similar to the name being proposed. The most relevant results will be presented in a report. To order a Nuans report, please select one of the options below.
