What Is In A Trademark Application In Canada?AAA IPRIGHT5
If the applicant is using or plans to use the trademark for use with such products or services in Canada and is authorized to do so, they can file an application for its registration.
There is nothing that prevents a trademark from being registered (assuming the trademark is otherwise registrable) absent an opposition if the applicant intends to register it without intending to use it in connection with the specified products and services. While opposing an application on the grounds that the applicant was not using and did not intend to use the mark or the application was submitted in bad faith may be conceivable, it can be challenging to find the supporting documentation. Previous oppositions that prevailed on this ground had to do with extremely harsh circumstances.
The application must contain:
- a statement in ordinary commercial terms of the goods or services in association with which the trademark is used or proposed to be used;
- details of the defined standard that the use of a certification mark is intended to indicate, as well as a declaration that the applicant is not involved in the production, sale, leasing, or performance of goods or services similar to those in connection with which the certification mark is used or intended to be used;
- a representation or description, or both, that permits the trademark to be clearly defined and that complies with any prescribed requirements; and
- any prescribed information or statement.
According to the laws, each product and service in the statement of goods and services must be identified by name in the description. Additionally, the report has to be sufficiently detailed so that the appropriate Nice class may be identified. If other parties in the same industry have used comparable language and scope, it is likely that the applicant’s description of services or commodities is written in the standard commercial language. When common retail terminology is unavailable, a clear and succinct definition of the goods and services must be provided. Usually, information on the purpose, scope, or field of use of the products or services must be included.
Lists of the products and services that CIPO accepts are searchable in the CIPO Goods and Service Manual. Specific criteria and recommendations for characterizing particular categories of products and services are set forth in the CIPO Trademarks Examination Manual. Regarding the use of exclusionary language in statements of products and services, CIPO also has a practice note.
Each trademark registration requires the filing of a separate application. Each group of goods or services in an application must be grouped according to the Nice Classification classes, preceded by the class number to which that group of goods or services belongs, and provided in the order of the Nice Classification classes. The Registrar, whose decision is final and cannot be appealed, will decide any dispute over the class that any products or services should be categorized under.
