The Business Names Act administered by the Companies and Personal Property Security Branch applies to:
In the case of sole proprietorships and partnerships, any business name other than the owner´s name must be registered. For example, if John Smith conducts business as "John Smith", he won´t need to register the name. But if he operates as "John Smith´s Shoes", he will have to register the name.
As another example, if John Smith and Jane Brown operate a partnership as "Smith and Brown", registration is necessary.
Corporations must register all names they use to carry on business if these are not the same as the corporate names. For example, if "Jane Brown Shoes Limited" also operates as "Brown´s Shoes", the business name must be registered.
