How to Register Your Business Name in Ontario

New Store Business Owner

If you’re thinking about taking the step into the world of entrepreneurship, Ontario Business Central is here to help you through the process. We can assist you with registering your business name and getting you started down the path of business ownership.

Before you open the doors to your new business, you’ll need to register your business name. In some cases, it may be necessary to conduct a business name search, to ensure that the name you want to use is not already taken. You may choose to do this to check if you are possibly infringing on a business name that is already in existence, or if there is a similarly named business with a bad reputation that may cause confusion with your business.

Registering your business name in Ontario allows you to legally operate under that business name. If you are incorporating under that name, you would also receive name protection within Ontario for your registered business name.

Ontario Business Central is able to assist with name searches, as well as registering the business name on your behalf. The process can be completed on a same-day basis, putting your Master Business Licence in your hand on the same day you order it.
