Register a business name with LLC?

I am coming from us, I want to setup a small business containing LLC, which is quite common in USA.

Can I register my business with LLC as part of the names in Ontario? I seldom see Canadian business with LLC in the name.

No and why would you want to do that anyway?

LLC's are entities that are only recognized by the US (same with S-Corps). Most other countries in the world operate as incorporated entities (In US parlance C-Corps).
