NUANS® Name Search Report     


For federal companies, corporate names must first be pre-approved by the Corporations Directorate before you use them. For a name to be considered, the Directorate requires the submission of a Federal NUANS® Name Search Report. NUANS® is an Industry Canada computerized search system that compares your proposed corporate name with a database of existing corporate bodies and trademarks. The Directorate requires and relies on the Federal NUANS® Name Search Report when determining whether to approve or reject your proposed name. Use LegalDeeds to generate this document, and obtain pre-approval for your proposed corporate name. You will receive an electronic ( PDF ) copy of your report by email within 1 hour (24 hours/day, 7 days/week).

The fee for the Federal NUANS® Name Search Report is $35, payable in Canadian dollars. There is no government fee for pre-approval.

Contact Information

Company Name Sought

Enter the corporate name you propose. The name must end with one of the following corporate designations: "Limited", "Limitee", "Incorporated", "Incorporee", or "Corporation", or an abbreviation therefrom (e.g. "Ltd.", "Ltee", "Inc.", or "Corp.").

Notice!  Name approval by the Corporations Directorate is not guaranteed. Further, rejection does not result in a LegalDeeds refund. To avoid rejection, click here for a brief tutorial on helpful strategies for choosing a distinctive corporate name.
