If you are registering an Alberta company you will be required to submit an Alberta NUANS report with the proposed Articles. The Alberta government puts the onus on you to ensure you have a clear name. Although the Alberta government will not allow you to register the exact same name as another company registered it will allow you to register similar names. It is important that you ensure that your proposed name is not only clear in Alberta but clear in all of the provinces and territories in Canada. We will pre-clear your name right across Canada as part of our service when you purchase an Alberta NUANS report with us!
