Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Smart & Biggar helps brand owners stop the importation of counterfeit and pirated goods at the border with the assistance of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

The CBSA’s RFA program allows brand owners to record their rights for monitoring with the CBSA so that they are notified (through their Canadian counsel) of any inbound, outbound or in-transit commercial shipments containing suspected counterfeit and pirated goods. The CBSA will not notify a brand owner of a shipment of suspected counterfeit or pirated goods unless the brand owner has filed an RFA with the CBSA.
