Direction to change the corporate name of an Alberta Corporation

If, through inadvertence or otherwise, a corporation comes into existence with or acquires a name that contravenes section 10 or 12, the Registrar may, by notice in writing, giving the Registrar’s reasons, direct the corporation to change its name to one that the Registrar approves within 60 days after the date of the notice.

The Registrar may give a notice under subsection (1) on the Registrar’s own initiative or at the request of a person who feels aggrieved by the name that contravenes section 10 or 12, as the case may be.

If a corporation

(a) is directed to change its name under section 12(2) or subsection (1) of this section, and
(b) does not appeal the request of the Registrar within 60 days after the date of the notice, the Registrar may revoke the name of the corporation and assign to it a number designated or a name approved by the Registrar and, until changed in accordance with section 173, the name of the corporation is the number or name so assigned.

If the Registrar is satisfied that a professional corporation has ceased to be the holder of a subsisting permit as a professional corporation issued under an Act governing a profession or occupation, the Registrar may, on giving notice to the professional corporation of the Registrar’s intention to do so, change the name of the corporation to exclude the words “Professional Corporation” and replace them with any word or abbreviation referred to in section 10(1).
