How does the trademark process work?

Whether you’re protecting a business name, logo, or slogan, applying for a trademark in Canada is a multiple step process that requires careful attention throughout.

At Vancouver Trademark, an experienced trademark lawyer will prosecute your file from start to finish, with the goal of successfully registering your trademark in the most cost-effective manner possible.

It is very important to search for conflicting trademarks prior to filing an application. A failure to conduct a thorough search could result in a waste of time and money.

Vancouver Trademark offers two search choices:

  1. Basic Search – This search is the most elementary of the two and looks for the exact words within one database. This database contains all trademarks registered and pending in Canada.
  2. Comprehensive Search – This search uses a more advanced algorithm which includes a detailed filtered search and common law search, aspects of which are not accessible to the public. This includes looking for names that look and sound similar, searching federal and provincial registries, searching the Internet and domain name directories along with telephone directories.

This process usually lasts for three days, during which the application is given a unique number and submitted into the registry.

The application is examined to ensure it has been properly completed before being sent to the Examiner for a thorough assessment.

The Examiner conducts a thorough review of the application to determine if it qualifies for protection as a registered trademark.

This examination may take over a half a year and result in an Examiner’s Report.

Once our trademark lawyers have addressed any objection or other concerns the Examiner may have to the application, the Examiner will approve the application for publication in the Trademarks Journal.

This Trademarks Journal provides the general public with two months to oppose the trademark, provided they have valid grounds for doing so.

At this stage, an application is allowed if there is no opposition to the trademark.

Once the final fee has been submitted a registration certificate will be sent to the applicant.

Canadian trademarks last 15 years after registration is approved. You can renew it indefinitely.

frequently asked questions

Several reasons:

  • A registered logo, name, or slogan not only distinguishes your business from competitors in the marketplace, but also deters others from using a similar mark.
  • It protects you from potential trademark infringement
  • A trademark is a valuable asset that can generate additional revenue through licensing

You can register any trademark that does not disobey the Trade-marks Act. For more detailed information, see the Trade-marks Act.

Typically it may take 18 months to 24 months for a trademark registration approval.

Canadian trademarks last 15 years after registration is approved. You can renew it indefinitely.

Your registered trademark is only protected in Canada. If you are considering expanding your products and services to other countries, you’ll need to register separate trademark applications in those countries.

If you have other trademark questions, our legal team will be happy to help you answer them.
