Trademark Registration in Canada
With this assignment you can order a trademark registration in Canada. We will take care of everything that is necessary for the professional preparation of the trademark registration in Canada, submission of the trademark application in Canada and send the trademark certificate to you.
The price for trademark registration in Canada includes our professional fees as well as the official trademark office fees for the trademark registration in Canada without opposition.
The trademark registration order for Canada includes the following tasks:
First, we check whether the trademark being registered is entitled to protection in Canada (absolute grounds of refusal). Not all trademarks can be registered as trademarks. For instance, merely descriptive terms for the respective goods and services may not be registered as a trademark.
To avoid collisions between your trademark registration in Canada and older trademarks we recommend to conduct a trademark search in Canada which must be ordered separately.
We will e-mail you the prepared trademark registration documents for Canada for your approval and file it then.
Once the trademark was registered in Canada we send you the certificate.
