Special Import Measures Act

Version of section 18 from 2005-12-12 to 2019-06-16:

Marginal note:Goods deemed to be like goods

 Where goods imported into Canada and goods sold for use in the country of export are like goods except only that the goods sold for such use have applied to them a trade-mark, as defined in the Trade-marks Act, that is not applied to the goods imported into Canada, and goods like the goods imported are not sold for use in the country of export, the goods imported and the goods sold for such use shall be deemed to be like goods for the purposes of this section if, in the opinion of the President,

  • (a) the goods are being imported into Canada without that trade-mark applied to them in order to avoid the operation of section 15; and

  • (b) it is probable that there will be applied to the goods, subsequent to their importation into Canada, that trade-mark or any other mark so closely resembling that trade-mark that it is likely to be taken therefor.
