These are the things you need to know first.

All .CA domain names must be registered by individuals or companies that meet “Canadian Presence Requirements” - even if the domain name is being used only to re-direct internet traffic to another URL.

Options for meeting the Canadian Presence Requirements include being:

A federally or provincially incorporated company (including a Canadian subsidiary of a foreign entity)

A Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada

The holder of a trademark registered in Canada (but only where the domain name consists of or includes the exact word component of the registered trademark)

You can’t assume that because you have a registered trademark or have registered a business name, another person would be prevented from registering a .CA domain name that includes the same mark or name.
