Changes to Quebec Law Affecting Trademarks


The Quebec National Assembly passed Bill 96 (An Act Respecting French), which amends the Charter of the French Language, in May of 2022. Bill 96 will place restrictions on non-French trademarks used by businesses located in Quebec and on products offered for sale in Quebec as of June 1, 2025. For information about the impact that Bill 96 will have on trademark use in Quebec, refer to our one-page handout here.

Alternatively, for inquiries or concerns about Bill 96, or to explore discussions about your company’s current strategy for trademark protection and registration in Canada, don't hesitate to reach out to a skilled trademark lawyer from our Intellectual Property team.
