A NUANS® Report is required if you are naming your company.
NUANS® is a computerized search system that, for the purposes of Corporate Registry, compares a proposed corporate name to a database of existing corporate names. This comparison determines the similarity that exists between the proposed name and existing names in the database, and produces a listing of names that are found to be most similar.
In most cases, the NUANS® report will reserve the proposed name, for a period of 90 days, for the person requesting the report. Business Name Search Reports are different in that, while they provide a list of similar names, there is no exclusive reservation of the name.
Namequest Corporate Services has a turn around time of 1 to 3 hours. We can search your name in any jurisdiction across Canada.
