Canada Trademark Registration Process

Step 1

Provision of Information

Through valuable communication with customers, we will brainstorm ideas as per text, pattern and color requirements, etc. provided by the customer to determine the main body of the trademark, relevant to the goods and services to be covered under a specific trademark.

Step 2

Classification & Search

The next step is to conduct a preliminary trademark search to find out whether there are any identical or similar trademarks. It makes it easier for further processing of your application.

Step 3

Formal Application

According to Intellectual Property Laws and application procedures, we will prepare relevant documents related to trademark registration and submit those promptly to ensure the acceptance of the application and to avoid any delays during the process.

Step 4

Preliminary Review

After the application is received at the Trademarks office, the official preliminary examination of the information provided in the application is done. When it is made sure that there is no error, the trademark application is formally accepted and filed.

Step 5

Substantive examination

At this point, the application reaches the official examiner who examines whether the trademark complies with trademark legislation and also that there is no conflict between existing registered trademarks.

Step 6

Government announcements

After the examination is approved by the examiner, the trademark will be disclosed to the public in the form of public notice for public inspection and objection for three months.

Step 7

Trademark registration

At the end of the publication period, if no objections are made until this point, the trademark can be officially registered. The trademark owner gets the authority to use a specific trademark for a 10-year validity period of the trademark registration.

Step 8

Issue Certificate

After the trademark is registered, the Intellectual Property department issues a trademark certificate, which authorizes the trademark owner can add the ® logo to the trademark for public identification.

Canada Trademark Renewal

Once registered, a trademark is valid for 10 years. Near the end of that period, the Canada Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), i.e. the trademark office, will send a notice that it is time to renew your Canada trademark. An application for renewal of a registered trademark should be filed within six months before the expiry date of the registration period. The application processing time is about 1-3 months.

Required documents

  1. Photocopy of the trademark owner’s identification document
  2. A copy of the certificate of trademark registration.
