Ontario NUANS Report
An Ontario NUANS Report is a seven page report which is generated from the NUANS name search system in Canada. This database compares a proposed name or trade-mark with a database of existing names that have been registered anywhere across Canada. This section will explain to you when an NUANS Report for Ontario is required and how to obtain one.
When is an Ontario NUANS Report Required
A NUANS Report for Ontario is required when you incorporate a company in Ontario or register to carry on business extra-provincially in Ontario. This report is specific to Ontario and you cannot use any other type of name search report when incorporating an Ontario company.
If you are registering an Ontario business name or an Ontario sole proprietorship or an Ontario partnership you will not be required to provide an Ontario NUANS Name Search Report . However it is advisable to at least do a preliminary name search regardless and you should refer to the section called choosing a name before you do any Ontario registration. A preliminary name search will give you an idea whether the name has been taken and what competition you have for the name. Even if you are allowed to register a business name similar to another in Ontario it is not advisable. Doing a preliminary name search helps avoid problems.
