Suggestions for searching

The Accountable Party field in the lookup tool is not case specific.

To improve search results on Accountable Party(s), note the following tips:

  • When searching for corporations ending in Limited, Ltd, Incorporated and/or Inc, type only the first portion of the corporate name to capture possible variations. (Example: ABC Company)
  • If you are unsure of the exact title of a company, type partial spellings to improve search results. (Example: ABC Company type only ABC)
  • When searching for an individual, type the last name first and use only partial spellings (Example: for John Smith type Smith, J or just Smith to capture any/all variations).
  • Use the name when a Municipality is the accountable party:
    (Example: City of Lethbridge type Lethbridge, City or Municipal District of Opportunity type Opportunity No. 17, Municipal District)
