Business Name Approvals

The first step in starting a new business is applying for a business name. The Name Approval process determines whether the name you are intending to do business under is both appropriate and available.

The BBOT’s Business Services Desk is happy to assist you with completing the application form and will submit the material on your behalf.

Stop by the BBOT’s offices in person to complete a Name Approval and one of our staff will be happy to assist you. Name approvals can be submitted in a few minutes in person and take up to 5 business days to receive results.

Our prices are as follows:

  • Regular Service: $60.00
  • Priority Service: $160.00 (one business day)

For information regarding the Name Approval process, contact Alisha Ali at 604-412-0100.
