    Should I register a named or numbered corporation in Ontario?
    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$post_date in /var/www/webapp/ui/mlb_faq.php on line 96

    If you have decided that you would like to incorporate your business provincially in Ontario, then there are a number of steps you will have to complete in order to do so. The first thing you will need to do is decide if you would like to have a named corporation or a numbered corporation. Registering a corporate name will ensure that no other company can register a business under that name, but requires additional steps prior to incorporating. This is not the same as trademark protection, and regardless you can still register a business name using a business registration name.
