Welcome to the CIPO's Goods and Services Manual. This searchable database is designed to assist applicants in compiling the statements of goods or services required to file a Canadian trademark application. This representative listing of terms has been classified according to the latest version (12th Edition) of the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks (Nice Classification). All entries are pre-approved by CIPO and, if selected, will be accepted by the Office without the need for further specification. Please note, however, that since the Office may add, amend, or delete a specific entry on the list at any time, it is the responsibility of an applicant to ensure that statements of goods or services in an application comply with the provisions of the Trademarks Act prior to advertisement in the Trademarks Journal.
