How Do I Register A Trademark In Canada?
The first step is to prepare a properly drafted trademark application. The trademark application is then filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, who will process it by reviewing it and raising any concerns with respect to registrabilty.
The Canadian Intellectual Property Office often requests additional information or amendments to your filing. When acting as your trademark lawyer in Toronto, our team can help you through this process by providing clear guidance on the relevant issues, counselling on how to respond to objections, and guidance on preparing the necessary responses that will help secure your trademark.
