How to Get Started

To get your Canadian trademark application started, consider the following preparations first.
Type of Trademark
Decide what you want to protect. As stated on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office website, trademarks can be one or many words, sounds or designs used to distinguish the goods or services of one person or organization from those of others.
Type of Application
In Use: your trademark is already in use and sold in the Canadian market.
Intend to Use: Your trademark is still in the conceptual stage and will be sold in the market in the next six months.
Trademark Availability Search
Ensure the proposed mark is available for registration through a combined CIPO database search, NUANs search, and/or the use of professional trademark search tools.
Priority Claim
A priority claim is a right given and recognized by the vast majority of countries around the world. For example, if you have already filed or registered your trademark in the US in the last six months, you are eligible to claim the filing date of your US application on your Canadian application to receive priority over other claims.
