Name reservation search required to incorporate a company.
NUANS (Newly Upgraded Automated Name Search) is a computerized search system that compares a proposed corporate name with databases of existing corporate bodies and trade-marks. 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.
This search is required if you are incorporating or continuing a named corporation in Alberta. The NUANS search is valid for 90 days. After 90 days, if the search has not been used, the name goes back into the database.
