Small Business Heroes Campaign

Small Business Heroes Campaign

It’s been an incredibly hard year and even though things may be looking up, we know that doesn’t erase the hurt, loss, and challenges that small businesses and entrepreneurs have felt.

We know we can’t undo that. Like Superheroes, entrepreneurs dream big and take risks. They are courageous, brave, resilient, and they don’t give up! This initiative is led by Startup Canada Communities to recognize small businesses.

All you need to do is fill in this form to nominate a local business you feel is most deserving of recognition and a wonderful gift.

The five nominees with the most votes will be chosen as the winners. StartUp Moncton will announce the winners on July 5th and will deliver a gift baskets made with local products to these local businesses.

Nominate your favorite local business below!

It is not mandatory to hire a trademark agent. Nonetheless, trademark registration can be a
complex process. An experienced agent can save you time by helping you prepare a complete
application as well as perform more comprehensive research and potentially assist you in opposition
and summary expungement proceedings. CIPO provides a list of registered agents, but cannot
recommend any particular one to you.
The time required to register a trademark can vary. Please note that the Office is currently
experiencing delays that are beyond the usual service standards. To see how an application
is processed (with references to average delays), please consult the IP Roadmap and How your
trademark application is processed.
For further information on trademark registration, we suggest you consult A Guide to Trademarks,
the IP Roadmap, How your trademark application is processed and the Goods and Services Manual.
Registering your trademark in Canada protects your rights in Canada only. If you plan to sell your
products or services in other countries, you should consider applying for foreign registration in each
country where you conduct business. For more information, please refer to the International
Trademarks under the Madrid Protocol or contact a trademark agent. You can also contact the IP
office of the country in question to find out about procedures. Links to foreign intellectual property
offices can be found on our website at: http://www.cipo.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/cipointernetinternetopic.
