Name in articles
2   The name of a corporation must be set out in articles filed with the
Registrar.


Interpretation
3   In this section and sections 4 and 5,

     (a)  "corporate person" means a body corporate incorporated in
Alberta, a registered extra-provincial corporation and a Canada
corporation;

     (b)  "dissolved body corporate" means a dissolved body corporate
that was incorporated in Alberta;

     (c)  a reference to the name of a registered extra-provincial
corporation includes an assumed name under section 270 of the Act.


Similar names
4(1)  A corporation and an extra-provincial corporation registered in
Alberta may not have a name that is similar to the name of a corporate
person unless that person consents in writing to the use of the name in
whole or in part.

(2)  A corporation and an extra-provincial corporation registered in
Alberta may not have a name that is similar to the name of a dissolved body
corporate unless the body corporate has been dissolved for more than 3
years.

(3)  No name that is identical or similar to a name that is identified in a
computer printed search report as "proposed" may be used by a corporation
or extra-provincial corporation registered in Alberta unless it is the
person who first proposed the name or unless it has the consent in writing
of the person who first proposed the name.

(4)  For the purposes of subsections (1), (2) and (3), a name is similar if
it is

     (a)  a name that would reasonably lead to the inference that the
corporation or extra-provincial corporation bearing the name is or would be
associated or affiliated with the corporate person, dissolved body
corporate or person proposing the name if the corporation or
extra-provincial corporation and the corporate person, dissolved body
corporate or person proposing the name are not or will not be associated or
affiliated, or

     (b)  a name whose similarity to the name of the corporate person or
dissolved body corporate or to the proposed name would lead someone who has
an interest in dealing with the corporate person, dissolved body corporate
or person proposing the name to deal with the corporation or
extra-provincial corporation bearing the name in the mistaken belief that
he is dealing with the corporate person, dissolved body corporate or person
proposing the name.


Minor differences
5(1)  A corporation and an extra-provincial corporation registered in
Alberta may not have a name where the only difference from the name of a
corporate person or of a dissolved body corporate is

     (b)  the insertion or removal of a year in the name,

     (c)  a difference in the legal element of the name referred to in
section 10(3) of the Act or the addition or deletion of the word "company"
or its abbreviation,

     (d)  the substitution of a word for its abbreviation or an
abbreviation for the word,

     (e)  the substitution of a word for its homonym,

     (f)  the addition or deletion of an article, or

     (g)  any other change that does not produce a phonetic difference
between the name and the name of the corporate person or dissolved body
corporate.

(2)  Subsection (1)(b) to (g) as they apply to a corporate person do not
apply

     (a)  where the corporate person consents in writing and undertakes
to

               (i)  change its name, or

               (ii) dissolve

          within 6 months, or

     (b)  in the case of a corporate person that is a registered
extra-provincial corporation, where the registered extra-provincial
corporation undertakes to

               (i)  cease to be registered in Alberta, or

               (ii) change its name in its home jurisdiction

          within 6 months.

(3)  Subsection (1)(b) to (g) as they apply to a dissolved body corporate
do not apply where the dissolved body corporate has been dissolved for at
least 3 years prior to the time the corporation or extra-provincial
corporation has the name.

6   No corporation may have a name that

     (a)  is too general,

or other characteristics of the goods or services in which the corporation
deals or intends to deal,

     (c)  is primarily or only the name or surname of an individual who
is living or has died within 30 years preceding the date of filing the
articles, or

     (d)  consists primarily or only of a geographic name,

unless the name has through use acquired a meaning that renders the name
distinctive.


Family names
7(1)  No corporation may have a name that contains a word or expression, an
element of which is the family name of an individual, whether or not the
word or expression is preceded by the individual's given name or initials,
unless the individual or the individual's heir, executor, administrator,
assigns or guardian consents in writing to the use of the individual's
name.

(2)  Subsection (1) does not apply where the corporation that will have the
name is the successor or affiliate of a corporation using the family name
as an element in its corporate name, and that corporation consents in
writing to the use of the name by the successor or affiliate corporation.


Name of amalgamated corporation
8   When 2 or more corporations amalgamate, the name of the amalgamated
corporation may be identical to the name of one of the amalgamating
corporations if the name is not a number name.


Additional form of name
9(1)  An additional form of name used pursuant to section 10(6) of the Act
must be a direct translation of the corporate name.
