From the 17th of June 2019 it will be possible to designate Canada in international trademark registration filings upon Canada joining the Madrid System for the International Registration of Trademarks. Previously, in order to obtain trademark rights in Canada an applicant had to file a national trademark application.

Canada joined the Madrid System on 17 March 2019 and became the 104th member of the Madrid System, which now covers 120 countries.

The accession of Canada to the Madrid System opens the possibility to Canadian trademark owners using the Madrid System to protect their marks in the 120 territories of the System’s other 103 members by filing a single international application and paying a single set of fees.
