Canadian Sole Proprietorship Registration

Purchase of one sole proprietorship registration in any province of territory in Canada and a name search report, if required.  This service will also provide you with a Federal Business Number, if needed.


Most provinces and territories will require a NUANS report or a name search report when registering a sole proprietorship.  Below is a list of the provinces and territories in Canada and what the requirement is for a report.  It is suggested that you obtain a full NUANS or name search report even if it is not required because the onus is on you to ensure your name is available.  At the very least a preliminary name search should be ordered.

Alberta - NUANS report not required (2 days)
British Columbia - BC Name Search Report required (4-8 days)
New Brunswick - NUANS report required (2 days)
Ontario - NUANS report not required (1 day)
Saskatchewan - SK name search report required (8-10 days)

FEDERAL BUSINESS NUMBER:  A Federal Business Number will not be issued unless the proprietorship needs an HST/GST account, Payroll account, Import/Export account, etc.  If a sole proprietorship makes over $30,000 it will be required to obtain a GST/HST no. in most provinces or territories.  See the section on the main site respecting Federal Business Number for more information.  A sole proprietorship is not required to charge HST/GST unless it is making $30,000 and there will be no need to register until such time.  Federal Business Numbers are issued to the person rather than to the sole proprietorship.  If you are confused in any way please contact us in advance of ordering.
