How to Start a Business

24 years of experience in helping Canadian startup businesses.

Business registration starts with:

  1. Picking a name,
  2. Choosing your jurisdiction and
  3. Choosing your entity type.

You may start by searching the unique or distinctive element of your proposed business name with a Business Name Search.
