The Business Name Search allows you to search for possible conflicts with a business name registered with the Ontario Ministry of Government Services. Searches can be done on exact business names, words in a business name or by the Ontario Business Identification Number. The Enhanced Business Name Search will only search and produce reports for the following ownership types: Sole Proprietor, General Partnership, Business Name – Corporation (Trade/Style Name), Limited Partnership, Partnership Business Name, Ontario Limited Liability Partnership, Extra Provincial Limited Liability Partnership and Extra Provincial Limited Liability Company.
The database only contains business names registered within the past five years.
