Canada Business Corporations Regulations, 2001

Version of section 18 from 2006-03-22 to 2010-03-24:


 A corporate name is confusing with

  • (a) a trade-mark or an official mark if the use of both the corporate name and either the trade-mark or the official mark, as the case may be, is likely to lead to the inference that the business carried on or intended to be carried on under the corporate name and the business connected with the trade-mark or the official mark, as the case may be, are one business, whether or not the nature of the business of each is generally the same; or

  • (b) a trade-name if the use of both names is likely to lead to the inference that the business carried on or intended to be carried on under the corporate name and the business carried on under the trade-name are one business, whether or not the nature of the business of each is generally the same.
