Picking a Corporate Name

How to Choose a Corporate Name

When choosing a corporate name, make it short and punchy. Ideally, a corporate name should be less than 20 characters:

  • Make it one or two words plus the legal ending
  • Inc. and Corp. are the most common legal endings
  • There’s no legal difference between Inc., Corp., Ltd., Incorporated, Corporation, and Limited
  • Professional Corporation is for regulated professionals
  • Make sure that you can get a .ca domain name that matches your proposed corporate name without the legal ending
