  • your name and/or firm's name
  • your address and/or firm's address
  • CIPO deposit account number
  • Industry Canada user name

Fee payments that can be made by E-Services/E-payment

* Cannot be paid using a CIPO deposit account.

E-payment tips

  1. Do not use your browser's Back button – you could overwrite your current submission.
  2. Your transaction will be sent to CIPO after you complete the payment process.
  3. Once on the secure payment site, you have 15 minutes to complete the payment.
  4. Print a record of your transaction using the Print Page button. Your browser's print function will not work during the session.
  5. You will temporarily leave the CIPO website to process your credit card payment. When adding your credit card number, do not add any spaces or dashes. The Complete Order button will return you to the CIPO website.
  6. For new applications to the Trademarks Branch, the official filing date of your request is the date the Trademarks Branch receives your electronic application and payment. An Office Acknowledgement Notice and a Client Proof Sheet will be sent to you shortly after you submit your application.

    For other applications, if all requirements are met, the official receipt date will be the date your electronic application is received by the server. Detailed information on the application process is included on the product line main page.
  7. Electronic submissions are considered originals. Do not send a duplicate copy.

Fax
