How to Process a Corporate Name Change in Alberta

Corporate name changes in Alberta

If you’re a business owner, there may come a time when you need to process a corporate name change in Alberta. To do this, you’ll need to visit Registrations Are Us or another Alberta Registry location with several things in hand:

  • One piece of government-issued photo identification
  • A completed Articles of Amendment form for your corporation
  • An Alberta NUANS report that’s been completed within the last 90 days (which we can provide)

Why You May Need to Change Your Corporate Name

There are several reasons you may want to change your corporate name. In some cases, you may need to process a change of corporate name request in Alberta to cancel an additional form of your corporate name or to designate an additional form of your corporate name.

In addition to adding or canceling additional corporate names, you may change the name of your corporation as part of a rebranding campaign or after a merger or business acquisition.

Regardless of the reason for changing your business name, you’ll need to follow the same process.

Obtaining a NUANS Report

A Newly Upgraded Automated Name Search (NUANS) report is a detailed report that compares your proposed corporation or non-profit name with a database of registered provincial and federal corporation names. This report helps you determine if the proposed name you’ve selected for your corporation is available and valid. It also reserves the name for you for 90 days.

You can obtain a NUANS Report directly from Registrations Are Us.

Requesting a Corporate Name Change in Alberta

While the name change process has several steps, it’s quite simple overall. Once you’ve obtained your NUANS report and determined that your desired name is available, you’ll need to submit your Articles of Amendment and the appropriate fees to our office for filing and await your Certificate of Amendment, which indicates that your legal name has been changed. While the time it takes to complete this process varies depending on how busy our office is and the accuracy of your documentation, it is typically completed within two business days.

For speedy and reliable corporate name changes in Alberta, visit or contact Registrations Are Us.
