Business Registrations and Declaration of Registration
Pursuant to the Business Names Act, if you would like to operate a sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, extra-provincial business name you must register the business name in the province that you will be doing business in. Also, if you would like to use any name other than your corporation name you must register a trade name. A trade name is any name different than your corporation name for which you carry on business. It’s important to recognize that a trade name is not a Trademark.
