A numbered corporation is a corporation that is given a nonspecific name based on the assignment registration number. An example of this would be an incorporated entity under the Business Corporations Act that has the assigned corporation number 1425822. This company would legally be registered as 1425822 Canada Inc if it was federally incorporated. If it was incorporating within Ontario, it would be named 1425822 Ontario Inc. Like named corporations, this aspect of incorporating can be very confusing, and having a lawyer helping you through this process can be very beneficial
