A trade mark is registered in the register of trade marks and service marks if:
- the decision to register a trade mark has not been appealed or the applicant’s right to the published trade mark has not been contested or the note specified in subsection 411(1) of the Trade Marks Act has not been submitted to the Patent Office within two months from the publication of the notification of trade mark registration;
- regardless of the appeal or the contestation, the decision to register a trade mark and the applicant’s right for the published trade mark remain in force.
If the trade mark is registered, all registration details set out in subsection 48 (2) of the Trade Marks Act will be entered in the register and published in the Official Gazette of the Patent Office.
After registration of the trade mark, the Patent Office issues an electronic trade mark certificate to the proprietor within 20 working days.
Upon application by the proprietor of the trade mark, the Patent Office issues a copy of the electronic trade mark certificate in paper form within 20 working days of submission of the application, but not before the payment of the required state fee.
