Well I can tell you that we have never used a lawyer for anything as of yet. We did everything online and we are federally incorporated with a base office in Ontario. The name search cost $13 online when we did it (http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/075.nsf/eng/home) that gave us the name federally however it isn’t trademarked. You can register everything online and it’s pretty simple, especially for a sole-proprietor. My advice is acquire a HST number, yes the returns are a pain however you can then claim all HST you spend on the business and get it back at the end of the year. Yes you will have to charge it as well but depending on what you plan on doing you can recover a lot of money for yourself (think of your home expenses that have HST on them, gas for your car, materials, products etc)

My 2 cents
