NUANS® Search is mandatory, if you wish to incorporate your
business in Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario,
Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan.
Search is a computerized name search system that compares a proposed
corporate name, business name or trademark with names in a database
of existing corporate names and trademarks.
Report is a seven-page document, which is generated by the NUANS
name search system. It lists the corporate names, business names
and trademarks most similar to your proposed business name. The
search is based on data contained in database of existing names
registered in Canada.
report can be used to determine if the proposed corporate name is
available. It is recommend that the user orders a preliminary name
search before actual NUANS search because it potentially saves you
time and money by eliminating proposed names with exact matches
before you pay for your NUANS Report.
the report shows that a name is unavailable, an alternative name
would require another NUANS® Report.
