If you own registered trademarks and/or registered/unregistered copyrights in Canada, we can prepare, file and monitor your Request for Assistance (RFA) with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) in order to intercept counterfeit goods before entering into Canada and provide customs with updated information on suspected importers of counterfeit.
