U.S.A. – Statement of Use
Approximately 12 months after filing of the U.S. trademark application, a statement of use has to be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office together with a proof of use for every class filed. If the statement of use is not filed, the trademark will not register and goes abandoned, any fees you have paid will not be refunded. The fee of $100 applies per class. We charge $150 for filing the statement of use, paying the Official fees and forwarding the registration certificate. The fee also includes docketing your trademark in our trademark system for the life of the trademark. We remind you of the approaching deadlines concerning the declaration of use after 5-6 years of registration and the renewal every 10 years.

Canada – Trademark Registration
Canadian Tradmark Applications are filed for specificly named wares and services. The Canadian Trademark system does not adhere to the International Classification system, thus a trademark can be filed for a wide variety of ware and services. There is, therefore, no limitation as to the classes of goods and services you may register. Please note that a declaration of use has to be filed, stating that all goods and services for which the trademark has been applied are used in Canada.
