If you're planning to incorporate a corporation with a distinct name rather than a generic number name, all provinces require you to create a name reservation to not only protect your use of the name, but to also protect and identify others who have already incorporated with a distinct name.

There are many "search houses" that provide Name Search and Reservation services, including the NUANS Report. So why choose OnCorp for your name availability search and reservation needs?

Here's two reasons:

1. The NUANS database does not provide a complete coast-to-coast search, which is required in some cases. This means that you have to perform more than one search in more than one place. OnCorp is the only service provider that provides you with a complete online suite of industry-leading tools.

2. OnCorp has been providing name search, reservation, and analysis services for over 25 years. Experience is our greatest asset, and your greatest benefit.
