Name Reservation Application

Who can file a name reservation application?

The Produire une demande de réservation de nom online service is intended for any person wishing to file a name reservation application with the Registraire des entreprises, in particular to constitute, continue the existence of, amalgamate or reconstitute a business corporation in Québec or to modify the name of a business corporation already constituted. It is also possible to obtain a name reservation in order to constitute or modify a Québec legal person.

What is a name reservation application?

However, reserving a name does not prevent another enterprise from registering the same name in the section entitled “Autre noms utilisés au Québec” (other names used in Québec).

A name reservation is valid for 90 days.


You may leave the service at any time and complete the request later. Your data will be preserved for 90 days.

Fees and terms of payment

The fees applicable to a name reservation application are given in chart RE-101, Tarifs et modalités de paiement (see English courtesy translation RE-101-T).
