Note:  This rule only applies to dot-ca registrants and domains since they are governed by CIRA, the dot-ca registry. If your registrant does not have any dot-ca domains registered under it, the above restriction does not apply. However, we do advise using the full legal name of your corporation when creating a registrant no matter the situation. This will help avoid future ownership issues with your domains.
