Name Searching

A business name search is fundamental component of corporation formation.  Name search reports that help you create a distinct, meaningful and available entity name.

Comprehensive Name Reports

An in-depth analysis of your company name. Everyone recognizes someone or something by their name. When incorporating a company, a good name is one that reflects your corporate identity, is memorable and meaningful. Is your corporate name distinct, or does it sound like or look like another name that could lead to confusion?

Carswell Legal Solutions will help you find the right business name easier with our Comprehensive Name Search Report. You’ll get a thorough, detailed report you can rely on to choose a business name that you are legally entitled to use.

We dive deeper to bring you a Comprehensive Name Search Report that:

  • collects results from numerous databases
  • collects results for all jurisdictions, including Quebec
  • includes common law sources that show names in use
  • collects results on Domain Names
  • includes a summary report consolidating the most relevant names

Our Comprehensive Name Search Report checks your proposed name against multiple databases and in provinces that NUANS does not report on. You’ll get more information – and more protection for your clients.

NUANS and Provincial Reports

Whether a NUANS or provincial report, these mandatory reports are required to register a named company in most of the provinces across Canada. Verify your company name availability prior to incorporating to exclude same or similar existing corporate names.

Carswell Legal Solutions will help you determine the name report type required to meet the federal or provincial government requirements. These reports contain information on similar corporations, business names and trademarks. We will provide recommendations on possibly similar names or potentially confusing names, or potentially, names that are not unique or distinct enough.

Unlike the Comprehensive Name Search Reports, the NUANS Report only checks for names against the NUANS database and the provincial report only checks for names against its respective provincial databases. Quebec company names do not appear on NUANS or on the individual province databases. Refer to Comprehensive Name Reports for name clearance in Quebec.
