First, your application must be filed with the Office of the Registrar of Trademarks at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. When the application is received by the Registrar of Trademarks, they will check it to make sure it is complete. If it is not, they will notify your trademark agent to ask for any missing information.


If the application is complete, and you have included the correct fee, the Registrar will open a file and issue a filing date and an application number. Your trademark agent should keep a record of this number and refer to it in all correspondence with the Registrar. Your trademark agent should receive the filing receipt within two or three weeks. In addition, the Registrar will enter your application as pending in the Canadian Trademarks Database as well as other databases maintained by external companies.
