Register Trademark In Canada
A Trade Mark protects the intellectual property of an individual, business organization or legal entity, and is typically a business name, word, phrase, logo, symbol, design, image, or a combination of these elements. That is why your identity in the marketplace must be original, distinct and unique.
Trademarking in Canada gives the owner the exclusive right to its use throughout Canada in respect of those wares and services. Registering a Canadian Trademark prohibits its use by another person in the similar context. A trademark registration in Canada provides prima facie evidence of ownership. In a dispute, the registered owner does not have to prove ownership; the onus is on the challenger.
Your trademark registration also gives you the exclusive right to use the mark across Canada for 15 years. A registered trademark in Canada is renewable every 15 years after that. The registration of trademarks is recommended but not obligatory.
