    We were able to register them with NameCheap. Just use a valid address etc. Didn't seem to have any issues.

    You can try to provide fake info and hope that they won't verify it. Or you need some sort of registered business in Canada.

    He needs to have a trademark. So no go with fake info. It's not blackhat, but illegal tbh.

    Sorry if it wasn't clear. I meant either "legal business / trademark" or as individual with fake Canadian address.

    Mmm. The way I see it, he can use someone in Canada, or a mail forwarding service.
