My mother runs an export enterprise from the Philippines and has carried out exporting to US/UK/Japan. I didn’t actually consider placing their product right here in Canada till this yr. To start out off, I’m nonetheless studying and nonetheless do not know a LOT of issues doing/beginning a enterprise right here. Principally, I’ve a provider already (my mom) and was questioning if anybody can advise me on the next:


1. We’re nonetheless determining how one can deliver objects right here in Ontario. We’re beginning to deliver 10-15 objects right here first and retailer it in a mini-warehouse so it will not be quite a bit. My query is, what do I have to find out about customs and such and pickup? My mom often has a shopping for agent already so she will not be fairly explicit about customs/particularities in nations. We are going to know much more within the coming weeks as now we’re simply specializing in the logistics of the product.
2. The enterprise title I would like is already taken however inactive (authorities of canada nuans web site). It says within the nuans web site that I have to contact the proprietor of that enterprise for consent however cannot discover any particulars on-line. Can the federal government of Canada present the contact information of that enterprise?
3. This could be silly however is there any distinction between registering your corporation provincially versus federal? I am beneath the belief I can solely supply my merchandise throughout the province if I register provincially or is it not the case with on-line retailers? That is my drawback with #Three the place the identical enterprise title (inactive enterprise) is registered. Maybe it is okay if it is registered in a special province?

Thanks very a lot!
