2. Application requirements

A trademark application that has the following will get a filing date and application number:

  • the name and address of the applicant;
  • a representation of the trademark (such as a drawing), unless the trademark is just a word or words;
  • the goods or services that the trademark will be or has been used for;
  • either a statement of your intention to use the trademark or the date of when you first used the trademark in Canada;
  • the application fee (Part I — Filing, Item 1).

3. After you apply — Filing a revised application

You may have to file a revised trademark application after an examination report.

  • Use the revised form only if you have already filed a trademark application and have a CIPO filing receipt.
  • Do not use the form for revised applications for the Trademarks Opposition Board.
  • Certain application changes are not allowed. Check which changes are allowed by reading sections 31 and 32 of the Trade-marks Regulations.
