Searches for Proposed New Businesses/Corporations

New Business Name Search-$10.00

This search includes Business and Corporate names from around the country (with the exception of Quebec) which may be in conflict with your proposed Business Name.  This is a good pre-check, particularly when the name is somewhat general, but as this is a manual search, there exists the potential for missed entitiies.  .  For a more comprehenive search on your business name, an automated  NUANS report should be ordered.

Preliminary Pre-Check - FREE

A Preliminary Check can be performed on a proposed name to determine if there are any obvious conflicts with a proposed name before incurring the cost of a full NUANS search. You can give us up to 5 names to conduct a pre-search on without being charged, so long as a NUANS Search is done on one of them. If a NUANS does not result, you’ll be charged $10.00. These names are searched against  existing Corporations, Business Registrations and Trademarks. This does not reserve the name and can not be used for incorporation purposes.                                                                                          Order a Preliminary
