To find a business, you can enter the following information in the search field:
- its official name;
- one or more keywords that appear in that name;
- its address;
- its Office permit or licence number;
- its Québec Enterprise Number (NEQ).
The NEQ can be found on the website of the Registraire des entreprises.
Example of a search by business name
You are looking for information about the ABCD Agency. You enter the keywords “Agency” and “ABCD.” The Get Information About a Merchant tool will display the merchants whose name or contact information contains at least one of these 2 words.
If you are unable to find the business you are looking for, try entering a more precise name.
The tool also displays the names used by a given merchant in the past. When a name is listed as inactive with the Registraire des entreprises, it is displayed in the tool for 2 years with the indication “nom antérieur” (previous name). You can therefore do a search using a business’ former name.
