How to register trading name for a numbered company?

In this case the incorporation was federal not provincial but along with the federal number they sent this
Ontario Corporation Number (OCN) 003xxxxx3

10xxxxx6 Canada Inc Business number 75xxxxx7RC0001

I didn't find a way to register a trade name on the federal site, maybe I missed it, or maybe trade names are only given by province?

I filed an amendment to my articles (Ont numbered company) adding a name ..you have to satisfy a name search ($50) too..so now I can use the numbered company or my trade name...but you also have to add it to bank and government so they recognise it...so now in am 12345678 ont inc O/A (operating as) Joes Hardware (trade name)
