Every applicant for a trademark in Canada must name a Canadian representative for service to whom correspondence may be sent by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. If you are outside Canada, you can file a Canadian trademark application directly with CIPO but you cannot prosecute it (respond to the Examiner, from application to registration) without naming a Canadian representative for service.
Our practical and cost-effective service: one-time flat fee of $100.00. Must be paid by PayPal (or credit card through PayPal) when you file the form below.
To initiate the process, simply send complete and submit the form below.
To submit this form you must have ready:
- A PDF of the filed application;
- Your PayPal account or credit card information.
- Record our firm as your Representative for Service at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO: the ‘trademarks’ office’);
- Receive CIPO correspondence on your behalf and forward all correspondence to you by email without advice or recommendations.
With this service we do not provide advice or any reminders of deadlines. You remain responsible for every aspect of your application. As representative for service only we do not review the Canadian trademark application or any of the correspondence to or from the trademarks’ office (CIPO), we do not record deadlines or advise you of them nor do we provide advice or guidance unless you specifically request it.
Of course, we will be happy to provide additional services at your request, including reviewing the application and any correspondence from the Canadian trademarks’ office and providing recommendations and advice. Costs for any additional services will be based on our flat fee rates (plus any government fees).
Use this form to engage us immediately to act as your representative for service on a Canadian trademark application. Note: this service is acting as your ‘representative for service’ only without any guidance or advice; if you want advice from us on any matter, please contact us directly. You may pay immediately via PayPal (any credit card), or have us contact you.
