A NUANS report (which stands for Newly Upgraded Automated Name Search) is a mandatory procedure that you must undertake if you are incorporating either at the Federal level or Provincial level.
The NUANS report is a 7-page report which lists the most similarly named corporations, business names and trademarks to your desired corporation name. In addition, as part of the NUANS report, a preliminary business name search may be conducted, if you choose, as a precautionary measure in order to find out if the name you’ve chosen infringes on any existing business names in Canada.
When ordering the report for a federal incorporation, ensure you choose Canada as the jurisdiction option.
Ontario Business Central offers Canada’s cheapest pricing for NUANS reports, at just $24.99. You are also able to add optional items to your NUANS report:
