Named vs. Numbered Corporations

Even though using a numbered corporation is advantageous since it avoids the delays and expense involved in searching and reserving a corporate name, it is not suited to everyone's needs. In particular, a numbered corporation is not informative in that it does not describe the business in any way. This is one of the major considerations that people take into account when they decide on a corporate name. Moreover, having a numbered corporation may lessen the prestige and credibility associated with your business.

If you decide to incorporate a named corporation using CorporationCentre.ca in association with Staples, then CorporationCentre.ca in association with Staples will obtain on your behalf the appropriate "name search" report that must be included with the Articles of Incorporation.
