Canada Trademark Services for Foreign Associates

There are several bases for filing trademark applications in Canada:

  1. Proposed use in Canada — the trademark is not currently being used in Canada or anywhere else globally.
  2. Registration and use abroad — there is a current trademark application or registration in another country, and the trademark is being used in a country outside Canada.
  3. Use in Canada — where the trademark is already being used on goods sold in Canada or services offered in Canada. This is the preferred basis for filing. The application cannot be amended after filing to claim use in Canada.

For Canadian trademark applications, we will require specific information regarding the particulars of the applicant, and:

  • Details of the goods and services for the trademark
  • Information on the trademark's use in Canada, including the date of first use for each of the goods and services if we are to file on the basis of use in Canada

  • Information on whether the trademark has been used in the U.S. or other countries and, if so, on which goods or services
  • Information on any corresponding foreign applications or registrations

At Cameron IP, we have a general same-day filing policy for trademark applications. However, we must have all of the information above in order to file an application in a timely manner. The cost to prepare and file a Canadian trademark application is the same regardless of the number of classes, as Canada does not have an official fee class system. To review more information about filing trademark applications in Canada, review our trademark FAQs for associates.
