Manitoba Name Reservation
In Manitoba a Name Reservation Report is required in order to be a named Corporation, Business Name Registration (Sole Proprietorship, Partnership), Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Partnership, Extra Provincial Registration or a Cooperative.
Obtaining a name reservation report takes 10 to 12 business days. Expedited services within 1 to 2 business days are available for an additional fee.
A Manitoba Name Reservation report includes a pre-screening of your proposed name against any exact matches and submission of your name to the Manitoba Companies Office for a decision.
Once a Name Reservation report has been approved the name is reserved for 90 days. Within this time frame you should register your company. Please note that a Name Reservation report is not required for numbered (no name) corporations.
Our positive evaluation of your suggested name is not a legal opinion and not a guarantee of acceptance by the government.
While we do our best to protect clients against situations when their suggested names are not accepted, the government may decline any suggested name at its discretion.
