Owners of trade-marks outside of Canada

"You name it!"

Owners of trade-marks outside Canada may apply to register trade-marks in Canada (see Registration of trade-marks).

Even without registering in Canada, the owner of a trade-mark outside Canada may have some rights in the trade-mark in Canada particularly if the trade-mark has some distinctive character and some reputation in Canada.

Even so, registration and proper use in Canada is strongly recommended.
