Feb 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
About this workshop:
Have you come up with a name for your business that’s clever, catchy and describes the essence of you and your product? You may have just created a trademark! Everything that sets your business apart—its name, product and service name, slogans, logos and even sound—produces a brand image that your customers come to know.
Join us on February 23rd, 2023 at 2:00 pm, alongside the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and Corporations Canada, to learn the differences between a corporate name, a trade name and a domain name, and how registering a trademark can protect your brand identity and set you apart from the competition.
