What does “using a trademark in Canada” mean?

Use is essential to registration and to the maintenance of your trademark. You can’t register your trademark Canada and the US if you don’t use it. In many other countries, you need to use the trademark after registration to make sure it’s not challenged and canceled for non-use.

In Canada, using the trademark for goods (products) is simply selling your products with your trademark being displayed either on the actual products or on their packaging during the sale.

Using for services is simply advertising of the mark in Canada and the services must be performed in Canada, or be available to be performed in Canada.
