What is a NUANS® Search and Why is it needed?

A NUANS name search is a computerized search system that compares a proposed corporate / business name or trade-mark with databases of existing corporate names and trademarks. This comparison determines the similarity that may exists between the proposed name or trademark and existing names in the database, and produces a listing of names that are found to be most similar.

  • Provincial or Federal Corporation
  • Not-for-profit organization or a Charity
  • Register a Trademark

NUANS search is a fairly comprehensive search to check availability of a business name. A NUANS name search is necessary to incorporate your business in Ontario or Canada. Requesting a NUANS search online takes only a few minutes. Your NUANS report is usually ready within 2-3 business hours. Your NUANS search report will show what specific corporate names that sound similar to your proposed name are already registered. It will also show you if you can use the proposed corporate name. If you are registering a corporation and the proposed name does not exist, the NUANS search would actually reserve the name for 90 days.
