Trademarking a Brand Identity

A brand identity consists of three components that can be registered with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO): Brand Name, Logo and Tagline.
Each component requires a separate application. Applications can include a search, which ensures your brand elements are unique within your market and business sector.
At The Trademark Group, when more than one application is filed at the same time (for example: Brand Name + Logo) you are eligible for a discounted rate.

Additional Fees and Services

Design Search & Opinion

If your application involves a logo, or other design, the search process becomes more involved. Consequently our fees for design mark searches are higher than word mark searches.

Examiners Report – Complex Office Actions

To respond to complex Office Actions, we charge on an hourly-rate basis and will provide a quote once the Examiner’s Report is received.

Trademark Oppositions

Once your trademark has been ­published, it can be opposed by ­anyone with valid reasons. Oppositions are complicated and much like court proceedings. To respond to Oppositions, or if you want our help to oppose someone else’s trademark, we charge on an hourly-rate basis.
 

NOTE: We will always seek your prior approval before incurring any additional fees.
